[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's one from a local nature reserve. I think it is a female of the species which is only found on the Norfolk Broads in the UK and feeds on Milk Parsley alone. The continental species feeds on a variety of foodplants including Fennel and Hemlock.

Hi Julian,
This is an exceptional swallowtail photo! The details are outstanding with a perfect degree of sharpness. The exposure is greatest plus because we have amazing light and beautiful vivid, well saturated colors. Your DOF is excellent and that is very pleasing blurred background. Congratulations!
