Iphiclides podalirius (Linnaeus, 1758)

La farfalla Iphiclides podalirius somiglia moltissimo al Papilio machaon,da cui si differenzia per la colorazione biancastra delle ali, percorse trasversalmente da fasce nere e per le appendici caudali notevolmente piú sviluppate, che paiono proprio code di "rondine", grazie alle quali questo lepidottero può superare lunghe distanze con volo planato senza sbattere le ali. Il podalirio vive in Europa soltanto nelle zone piú calde e si va facendo sempre piú raro.

Bonjour Sergio,
La lavande est vraiment attractive pour les papillons, tu as en plus la chance d'avoir vu un Flambé sur cette belle plante, ce qui ajoute à l'intérêt de cette image. Très belle combinaison de couleurs aussi.
Une bonne après-midi

Hallo Sergio
My time is so short, but this image is very eye-catching and the colours is just lovely. It is so beautiful so see how the butterfly is sucking up the nectar from the plant. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Wow Sergio, One more splendid capture of the wonderful buttefly. Nice Pov and sharp details. Great focus too. Everything perfect for this shot.

Hi Sergio. This is an unusual POV for the Butterfly it makes it look like a jet fighter plane. You have taken it with good detail and natural colours. sharp focusing on the lavendeer flwer heads. wel ldone TFS.

Hello Sergio,

Superb picture.
Colours,light and definition are splendid.
Fantastic definition and details.
Good note.

Ciao Sergio,
mi è già capitato di fotografare molte volte il Podalirio quest'anno e ho un'immagine con un POV frontale come questo con la farfalla posata su un Tarassaco, ma qui il magnifico colore della lavanda fa la differenza e rende armoniosa e piacevole la composizione, ottimo lavoro.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Ciao amico Sergio,

Che grande combinazione di colori, trattati con grande armonia. Il risultato è eccellente, con una leggera e piacevole e rinfrescante. Buona la messa a fuoco e una buona composizione.
