[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Searching in my archiv if found one of my happy shots this year. It was so amazing to see this wonderful butterfly and we followed him about half an hour.
It was a wonderful afternoon with so much butterflies, hoverflies and autumn-flowers.

The Old World Swallowtail (Papilio machaon), is a large butterfly of the Papilionidae family. The butterfly is also known as the Common Yellow Swallowtail and the Swallowtail.

This striking butterfly is yellow with black wing and vein markings and a wingspan of up to 8 cm. The hind wings have a pair of protruding tails which give the butterfly its common name.

Hallo Sabine, hallo Stephan!
Eine wundervolle Aufnahme. Solche Photos macht man nicht alle Tage - und dann noch in dieser Farbkombination. Hier kann das Auge richtig schwelgen. Einfach toll ...
Ich wünsche Euch eine schöne Weihnachtszeit!

Ein Schwalbenschwanz im Dezember - auch nicht schlecht! Ich hatte als Kind diesen Burschen mal "life" gesehen. Wie ich Dich einschätze, hast Du eine ganze Serie geschossen. - Sehr schönes, farbenfrohes Schmetterlingsfoto. Sehr gute Schärfe und einen schönen Hintergrund. Bin schon ganz neugierig auf den Rest der Serie. (Du hast garantiert noch bessere ...!) Dank für den Flattermann aus der Gattung der Ritterfalter. Ich wünsche Dir und Stephan ein schönes Restwochenende.
