Iphiclides podalirius

Famiglia PAPILIONIDI

Iphiclides podalirius (Linnaeus 1758) Podalirio
Ali anteriori 32-40 mm
Farfalla di notevoli dimensioni, con colore di fondo bianco 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, dalla pianura ai 1800 m. Nel territorio si osserva comunemente planare tra gli alberi da frutto e le siepi fiorite; talvolta anche in città.

Hello Silvio,
Another brilliant macro against this purple flower. The details is awesome and the light is just wonderful. The depth is well managed cutting out the busyness around it. Please allow me to add this composition to mt theme.

Ciao Silvio,
specie frequente ma sempre affascinante e fotogenica, la I. podalirius.
Bello il contrasto fra i suoi colori chiari, lo sfondo e il viola del cardo.
Un altro giorno è passato e la primavera si avvicina....

Hi Silvio!
Let's start a "Silvio's day" :)
This is a very beautiful capture of very nice and colourful species of butterfly. I like POV and details of this photo. Maybe DOF would be a little better (especially flower is a little out of focus) but I still like it :)
Best regards,
Radomir
