Ive never seen before a Papilio machaon into our yard.
But today we see two of them on the Buddleja davidii.

Sadly it was only possible to make a backlight picture of the butterfly.

Hello Sascha,
I see this is number 101. So congratulations, overlooked nr. 100. Fascinating photo in beautiful backlight and colours. Great POV, composition and contrasting dark BG.
