Papilio machaon, long time ago

Post by joachim » ... OPD4y4JzrV
This is not an extraordinary butterfly but it was the first butterfly I bred when I was 15. At that time the machaon was found in every garden. Here I saw the last one 8 years ago.

That is a VERY special specimen. The sentimental value is priceless. It also appears to be in perfect condition including the color. Thank you for sharing.
