Diane

Family: Papilionidae

The only specimen of this beautiful species I have seen this year. Some butterfly-amateurs are making a reintroduction attempt of Z.polyxena which is extinct in Switzerland for quite a while. Hopefully it will survive.

Hello Anne,
I think you've done a great job, perhaps the sharp was a little aggressive, but the result is simply wonderful!

Hello Anne,
another superb view with pin sharp details. The colours are so similar that harmonises the composition.
Lively presentation of details, and the slight curve of the branch gives a special effect.

Regards,
Foozi
