[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Papilio machaon (Swallowtail, Schwalbenschwanz, Le Grand Porte-queue).
We had a lot of these beautiful butterflies this year and hatched them in a special box until they eclosed and were able to fly away.
This one has just come out of its cocoon some minutes ago and is pumping its wings.
