An Orchid Swallowtail

This morning on my walk to the shops I had something flitting around my face as I walked past a tree. As one does, I instantly tried to protect my eyes & when I opened them again this is what I saw. He (or she) was huge, about 8" across & just beautiful. Not often I get to see them & never get pics. This one was taken with my phone. I believe he is an Orchid Swallowtail.
