Photographer's Note

Alpine Apollo, a rare 'bird', protected by law, can be found (with much luck) in summer in Slovenian Alps. The large butterfly is shy. Running after it with your camera in hands, is in vain. Only patience can help.

Macro lens mounted on a tripod next to an attractive flower. Scanned by Nikon CoolScann IV-ED. Cropped, resampled to 650pix height; unsharp mask 52%, radius 2; green background was masked off by a hand drawn mask, feathered 25pix; some selective sharpening (brush) on hairs of the body and head.
