Scarce Swallowtail
Iphiclides podalirius
perhaps for us
but not for the rest of Europe.
An abundant Swallowtail
in fact.

Found in open woodlands, fields and gardens.
form Saxony to China.
A Palearctic Swallowtail

Pear-tree Swallowtail
Southern Swallowtail
but my favourite
a
Sail Swallowtail


Beginning to suffer from a lack of Blackthorn Bushes.
