Notes:

This antique engraving of a swallowtail butterfly—the English swallowtail, sometimes called in America the Old World Swallowtail Butterfly, is attributed to Thomas Bewick. Notice how the engraving becomes speckled with white towards the left, creating a graduated shading effect and helping the butterfly appear three-dimensional; a high resolution scan of the image shows clearly this is the ork of the engraver and not merely damage to the block.
