[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Very wide range (circumpolar) through N America, Europe, and Asia. Over 100 ssp described ( at least half of which are of dubious value for subspecies status) in what is known as the "machaon complex." A few populations in Europe may be decining due to human development. Papilio hippocrates almost certainly belongs with this species and is very similar to the East China specimens (ie.: venchuanus )

Great capture, Paolo.
Super sharp details and gorgeous colors.
A great POV to show off all the beautiful patterns on those wings.
Good management of DOF that isolates the subject.
TFS. : )

Hello Paolo,
this is a great butterfly shot. Excellent sharpness, brilliant colours and great POV. This is a great composition. Thank you for posting.

I would love to see one of these for real, you made him look so beautiful through the lens. 10 out of 10.

Una bella imagen Paolo con gran nitidez y colorido.
Excelente POV y elección del encuadre bien agustado, con un leve fuera de foco sobre el extremo derecho del ala, pero que no desmerece la calidad de la composición.
Bien Hecho.
Saludos... Ricardo

Una bella immagine Paolo con gran nitidezza e colorito.
Eccellente POV ed elezione dell'inquadratura bene agustado, con un salpi fuori di faretto sull'estremo destro dell'ala, ma che non demerita la qualità della composizione.
Ben fatto.
Saluti... Ricardo
