The Old World Swallowtail Butterfly

Papilio machaon

Description:

Also known as the common yellow swallowtail or just swallowtail. Very beautiful yellow butterfly with black blue and red markings. It is not so common to come along such butterfly. I spotted one more in April, and again in May.

Habitat:

I found it playing around at a carwash, and for my luck it decided to stop on a wall and enjoy the sun.
