Spanish Festoon - Zerynthia rumina
Forest/ Agriculture land
Thank you all!
Karen is spot on with the ID, this is a Spanish festoon (what a name). Beautiful butterfly, nice spotting!
It does, doesn't it.... I've been searching guides to find a match to your moth, but a Checkerspot is the closest I've gotten...
Its very look alike a Checkerspot one.
it does look like an air pic, though ;)
No, the poor guy drowned......
nice capture is this in air,
