European Swallowtail Butterfly

(Papilio Machaon Gorganus)

While on holiday walking up Lassi hill in Kefalonia I was excited to see a European Swallowtail butterfly laying eggs on wild fennel in a garden, so after that I really wanted to film one of these large beautiful butterflies. Well after a lovely holiday we had to vacate our apartment in the morning and not being picked up till midday. So while my wife sat by the pool I went looking for a Swallowtail butterfly I had seen earlier in the morning feeding on flowers in the gardens. Well just like my last day in Salou, Spain I did manage a picture with my digital camera and an iPhone movie.
