Looking back to the sunny days last summer I found this Old World Swallowtail (Papilio machaon) in my Archive.

We spent one week at the Lake Garda like every year, nearly a second home in Lazise for us.
There we saw this wonderful butterfly.

I haven't seen them in Germany any more in the last years.

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.

I hope you like it and I will see his children this year, that would be wonderful.

Helo Sabine!
I'm impressed of this amazing shot with fantastic subject! great colours and superb details!

Hallo Sabine,
fast wäre mir Dein herrliches Schwalbenschwanz-Portrait entgangen! Hier sieht man auf den ersten Blick: ein Profi mit viel Geschick und ausgezeichnetem Gerät am Werk. F22 bringt phänomenale Tiefenschärfe. Der Falter tritt fein gezeichnet bis in kleinste Details wie dreidimensional aus dem Bild hervor. Der dunkle Hintergrund behält genügend Resthelligkeit und Farbe, um sehr natürlich zu wirken. Großartiges Foto! Habe noch nie zuvor so viele Details an diesem mir gut bekannten Falter zu Gesicht bekommen. Bin überrascht über das viele Rot auf dem Hinterflügel, fast wie beim korsischen P. hospiton. Ein Entomolge könnte auf die Idee kommen, nach diesem Foto eine neue Unterart zu beschreiben.
Mit Gratulation, Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,
Peter

Excellent composition and details, well done.

Woooooooow ! What a wonderful Papilio machaon that you have very well captured ! The colors and details on butterfly are great. Congratulations Sabine and thanks for sharing.

Well since I've been to Peru so many people have posted excellent shots that just simply had to be visited and this is definitely one of them. The colors radiate from this gorgeous composed image and the details are tack sharp. Well done Sabine. :)

Just brilliant colours on this picture.
Also excellent composition - it's hard to imagine that it's possible to make so good picture ;-)
