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.
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.
