Swallowtail Butterfly by Trevsnature

This beautiful Swallowtail Butterfly I photographed at Strumpshaw Norfolk,

The Swallowtail is our largest native butterfly, and also one of our rarest. This spectacular insect is our only resident butterfly of the Papilionidae family, which is one of the largest butterfly families in the world. Seeing the adult butterflies flying powerfully over the Norfolk Broads is a sight to behold,
The British subspecies is confined to the fens of the Norfolk Broads.

    Excellent capture!!! Great detail, and the flower adds a vibrant colour. Beautiful! A pair of these flew by me once this year, but even when they landed, they kept their wings moving very quickly. I never did get a decent shot. You’ve done well!
