The scarce swallowtail (Iphiclides podalirius) is an endangered species in central europe. But in the Mediterranean you can still watch some.

Hello Roland,
An attractive shot of this beautiful swallowtail against a bright blue sky. Focus is sharp and exposure is right on the money. It looks very similar to our tiger swallowtails we have here in Ohio.
Placing the subject a bit off center frame may make it a tad more eye appealing, but this is just my personal opinion.
