Workshop Note
Dear Alexei,

this Swallowtail from the Steppe near Vienna, freshly taken on 13 April 2007, is returning the best regards to its relatives in the Steppe of Odessa.

Location:
Hundsheimer Berg, a solitary hill covered with dry grassland vegetation, as few miles to the east of Vienna. From there you have a look down on the river Danube, and far down into the Hungarian Puszta grasslands. Unfortunately, the view does not go as far as Odessa. But in my imagination, it does.

The camera:
SONY DSC-H5, 3072 x 2304 pixel, sRGB, 16mm, F/8, 1/200 sec., ISO-125, no tripod, no flash; 13.04.2007, 12:30.

Postwork:
Photoshop Elements, cropped, downsized to the web, selectively resharpened, levels slightly adjusted.

With all my best wishes from Vienna.

Peter
