Scarce Swallowtail

Glossa April 2012

Swallowtail butterflies seem to love the Philadelphus (mock orange) flowers even more than the real thing. There is an established orange tree nearby and when it is in blossom, it is usually the Painted Ladies which flock there.

These Swallowtails are, of course, not at all scarce in Greece. They were given their English name by British lepidopterists for whom they were a rare treat.
