Scarce Swallowtail

Family: Papilionidae
Wingspan: 60-80mm
Flighttime: May to July

On higher altitude we can see them only in June, July, but rarely too.
I had the nice surprise to see this welcome guest on my alpine meadow and was following him quite a long time until I finally could take some pictures.

Hallo Anne,
gute Aufnahme von diesem seltenen Gast in deiner Gegend den ich noch überhaupt nie zu Gesicht bekommen habe. Es hat sich auf alle Fälle gelohnt, dass du ihm gefolgt bist. Mir gefallen vor allem die Farben und das gute Licht.
