Papilio machaon

Published May 16th, 2012

There is an artificial lake near my house where somtime I go for a walk and for taking pictures. Last time I was there was the first time I came across this butterfly in nature, It was amazing in size and beauty. I was lucky enough to catch it with my camera after he got out on me several times. That day I was looking for it again even though I did'nt succeed.



When I got home for my surprise, i've read that this butterfly is quite common in Israel, so the next day I went to the same place with a friend of mine for another try to catch a photo of it. We walked in about six hours of footage and when we were just about giving up i saw this butterfly again, it went just next to me but i could'nt catch it though i tried, but it was'nt the only one, i saw some more and finally i managed to take some pictures of them.



Unfortunately the pictures i took are not in the best quality but ... I'm sure that i'll catch it again...
