Great shot of a caterpillar of Papilion machaon (Linnaeus, 1758)!
The larva feeds on Funcho (Foeniculum vulgare), Sweet fennel in english. But also feeds on some other plants: Cicuta virosa, Carum carvi, Trinia, Laserpitium, Pimpinella saxifraga, Aegopodium podagraria, Anethum graveolens, Angelica silvestris, A. archangelica, Levisticum officinale, Peucedanum, P. palustre, Pastinaca sativa, Heracleum sphondylium, Daucus, D. carota, Heracleum, Ferula, Dictamnus albus, Ruta and Haplophyllum.
It's a very beautiful butterfly that flys on daylight. It belongs to the Papilionidae Papilioninae family.

Well captured. These caterpillars really are quite photogenic and the butterflies are beautiful of course.

This might benefit from being a bit brighter perhaps?


Yasu again Christos!
This one is also beautiful.Vivid colors,BG and framing are perfect.Very well done!
Thanks for sharing.

Good composition and POV. Maybe just a little dull.

How cute!! Very good picture. Kalinichta! (It is getting late).
