How cute they are!

I dont know about you, but I enjoy watching them :)

Unfortunately I often see white or common ones.

So this time I really had to make as many photos & videos as possible.

It was very windy so I tried to keep the plant with my hand


This is one of the most beautiful butterflies.

Its name: (greek) Ιφικλείδης ο ποδαλείριος and in English Iphiclides podalirius

As we can read from this website: https://butterfliesofcrete.com/family-papilionidae/iphiclides-podalirius/ this and the "Papilio Machaon are the largest butterflies flying on the island."

In one of my next posts you will get to see the Papilio Machaon (and its larva too!)

Its head:

And the whole body with a close-up

I hope you enjoyed the shots!

I am also on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/katycrete/ and also sharing my photos and ideas on noise :) https://noise.cash/u/katerinaramm

It feels nice to be back after a while, hope that I ll see you all soon!
