Swallowtails on Lilacs for Mellow Yellow Monday


Each year the attraction of Lilacs in bloom bring Swallowtail butterflies to Bird Alley outside my living room, window.I watched them on the weekend as they fed on our Lilac bush .The complementary colours of yellow and purple created a visual delight.

Great shots (no surprise there then!)
WE have just a few swallowtails in one area of Britain, but I was pleased to see some in Italy.
