Iphiclides podalirius Swallowtail butterfly by 


Iphiclides podalirius (Papilionidae) sometimes called the Scarce Swallowtail, was found in our garden in Romania.

In some years the Scarce Swallowtail is quite abundant. The Scarce Swallowtail is getting rarer and it is now protected in some central European countries. It is protected by law in Czech republic, Slovakia, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg and Poland. It is considered Rare-Endangered and protected in some provinces of Austria and of status Indeterminate throughout Europe.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:
