Dancing Swallowtail

This female Orchard (or Citrus) Swallowtail was moving fast, checking out the leaves on my kaffir lime tree, probably with a view to depositing eggs. I only had time to quickly fire off this one shot before she was off and away. She is one of the first of the season.
Nice one.

Fantastic detail , of these beautiful wings.

Great colour and DOF - well done, Robin

Well caught! They are so quick. We have butterfly houses here where you can go and see these (to us) exotic species but it's lovely to get the chance to see them in their natural surroundings.

Oh congratulations on capturing this beauty. Well done.
