Running late this morning, but enough time to see that this is an excellent post. Good POV, clarity and details. TFS.
Hi again, Peter:
What a strange resting posture for a butterfly! I will really need to make an effort to see this species in 2006 in Europe - the UK is hopeless for butterflies now, even the "common" species are hard to find. Thanks again for showing this one to us.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Excellent photo of this Papilionidae!
The Zerynthia polyxena (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775) is really a very beautiful specie!
Very good POV!
Very good BG too!

Great composition, the golds and blacks contrast well against the green, really gives the photo depth. TFS.

This looks almost Alien, Peter! I've never seen anything like that. You must have a very good eye, and lots of patience to find these! Great composition to present it in all glory!
The little creature really looks poisonous by colour as well as posture. Your note is very informative.
Thanks for sharing.
Interesting the colour display as a warning. Of course also used for mimicry to deceive potential predators.

Only watching this picture and previous your shot taken at different POV I have realize that this is the same species. As I have written pictured this species at similar POVs and I thought that these are different species. Thanks a lot for new knowledge.
Amazing POV which gives a nice idea of this species.
