Famiglia PAPILIONIDI

Iphiclides podalirius (Linnaeus 1758) Podalirio
Ali anteriori 32-40 mm
Farfalla di notevoli dimensioni, con colore di fondo bianco, leggermente tendente al giallo, su cui spiccano striature trasversali nere. Le ali posteriori mostrano una sottile fascia basale interna e, sul bordo esterno, una serie di lunule blu bordate di nero. Nella regione anale spicca un ocello con margine nero e rosso. Molto evidenti le due lunghe appendici caudali divergenti e ad apice giallo.
I bruchi hanno forma ellissoidale e depressa. La colorazione è verde con strisce gialle e macchie rosso-brune. Si nutrono di foglie di Rosacee, particolarmente pruni, albicocchi e biancospini. In genere si susseguono due generazioni, una da maggio a giugno, l'altra da agosto a settembre.
Femmina più grande del maschio
Specie mesofila, si rinviene nei prati e nelle radure dal livello del mare al piano montano fino a circa 1600 metri s.l.m.
Presente in Europa, Nordafrica e Asia minore. In Italia ovunque, esclusa la Sardegna. Nel territorio si osserva comunemente planare tra gli alberi da frutto e le siepi fiorite; talvolta anche in città.

Bonito contraluz y ángulo de disparo interesante para apreciar la parte inferior de la mariposa. El conjunto es precioso aunque hay un exceso de luz.
Saludos Silvio.

Ciao Silvio,
Bella photo of the unusual butterfly. Very nice the way the light shows through and highlights the detail of the wings. Very well captured.

Hello Silvio,

Another wonderful macro of the your butterfly. She is balancing so delicately whilst she is feeding! I like your POV which give a slightly different view of the insects wings.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Silvio,
Wonderful shot with the back lighting presenting a fabulous effect on its wings as it perches on the beautiful thistle. The subjects stand out elegantly from the darkish BG well. Excellent POV to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.
TFS.
