Iphiclides Podalirius - Scarce swallowtail
Invertébrés - Arthropoda - Insecta - Lepidoptera - Rhopalocera - PapilionidaeIts long tails, whiter appearance and ‘tiger’ stripes distinguish it well from P.machaon. It flies higher than the Swallowtail with longer, lazier glides
In some years the Scarce Swallowtail is quite abundant. The Scarce Swallowtail is getting rarer as the blackthorn bushes are being cleared; and it is now protected in some central European countries.

Bonjour Jean-Jacques !
Wow, ce papillon est magnifique ! Je n'en ai encore jamais vu en vrai, j'apprécie d'autant plus la photo ! :-) La composition et le POV sont sublimes, tout comme les couleurs - la couleur violette des fleurs dans l'arrière-plan, en particulier, est très belle. Félicitations !
Valérie.

I see the differences between the 2 Swallowtails you have captured. This one doesn't have all the patterns as your first one. They love the lavender, so popular for the insects. Good shot JJ, lovely composition, Thank you,
Janice

Excellent shot, lovely colours and detail...well composed.

Hi Jean.
Your picture of the butterfly and the flowers is wonderful. You managed to apply precisely exact aperture and shutter speed. As a result we can see very colourful and amazing picture which testifies to a great skill of its author. My compliments,
Alexei.

le flou et les couleurs du BG mettent bien en valeur ce beau papillon (je pensais que c'etait un machaon!).

Bonjour Jean,
lovely composition, the colors in the BG set off this butterfly so nicely. POV, sharpness and details are wonderful. This closup is beautiful.

Hi JJ,
An excellent shot on this Scarce Swallowtail. Beautifully composed and framed. A spot on exposure has rendered beautiful colors and good detail. The OOF backround of colors really adds to the shot.
This looks great!
