Hi Tricia, What a really beautiful place to visit and the weather looks gorgeous too. It's rain, rain and more rain here :-(

I have nearly expired with envy about the Swallowtail and your lovely photos of it!!!

Have a wonderful time :-)

I am quite green with envy Tricia.
Not been to Tuscany for couple of years and those Swallowtail are so obliging they don't take any notice of you.

Wendy - yes very lucky. Glad Pete spotted it!

Hi Jan.. we came down to earth with cold wet weather when we got back.. and the swallowtail was rather good :D

RR- luck was with us

Roy - the Swallowtail wasn't at all bothered about the two camera's being trained on it.. I'm glad to say!
