About the Item

The Swallowtail butterfly is the largest butterfly in the UK and a prized inhabitant of the Norfolk Broads – its only established UK home. Its survival has been enabled by an active management of the fen landscape, where reed and sedge are cut to allow other plants to grow in particular the milk parsley, where the butterfly lays its eggs on the tallest plants. On a windless day between late May and mid-July, and with a bit of luck you will spot one of these rare British insects. Guy Allen’s etchings inspired by the fauna of Norfolk have a remarkable level of detail. His etchings capture the character and spirit of his subjects.
