This is one of the 40 images from my solo exhibition "Dancing on the wings of freedom" (Lithgow, NSW, Australia, 2016) which featured small winged and nectar-drinking creatures: butterflies, bees, dragonflies, cicadas and Australian native birds. All prints in this collection are a limited edition of 25.
The Old World Swallowtail (Lat. Papilio Machaon) is a butterfly common to Europe. In this close-up image, taken on the island of Iz in mid-Dalmatia, the butterfly appears to be flat, almost as if made of paper. To my eyes, there is something Oriental about it, as if it has flown off a Japanese kimono!
Most of my images are available in a range of sizes and on different kinds of photographic and fine art paper, including Inkjet Pro Fine Art Paper320gsm, Inkjet Hahnemuele Bright White Rag Paper 310gsm, Inkjet Canson Rag Photographique Paper 310gsm, and Inkjet Hahnemuele Museum Etching Paper 350gsm. Please ask me if you wish to place a special order and I will do my best to fulfil your wishes. Please note that prints on fine art paper will be shipped flat to avoid damage to the extra sensitive print, which may slightly increase the shipping cost. I will provide you with a special shipping quote prior to your placing the order if applicable.
