, 1/25 f/14.0, ISO 200, tripod. Specie: Papilio machaon

Nome scientifico: Papilio machaon (Linneus, 1758) Dimensioni: Lunghezza ala anteriore mm. 32-45 apertura alare: 70 - 100 mm Descrizione della specie: Il Macaone è una farfalla della famiglia delle Papilionidae, famiglia prevalentemente tropicale, di cui solo 9 specie presenti in Italia. Con i suoi circa 8 centimetri di apertura alare massima, non è difficile incontrarla e notarla soprattutto nelle campagne o in collina dall'inizio della primavera (periodo in cui le crisalidi sfarfallano), fino ad autunno inoltrato. Elegante ed agile nel volo, il maschio è anche difensore del proprio territorio; se vi capitasse di vederne due che volteggiano vicini in audaci acrobazie, probabilmente uno sta cercando di cacciare l'altro. Presenta il tipico comportamento da Butterfly Hilltopping, ovvero cerca di volare sopra il punto più alto del terreno in cui si trova (dominio). La parte superiore ha ali anteriori con una singolare e sgargiante livrea gialla e nera e ali posteriori con una coda di mediocre lunghezza e macchie arancioni di grandezza variabile. Inoltre, sono presenti una larga fascia nera soffusa di azzurro ed una macchia ocellata rossa posta all'angolo interno. La parte inferiore ha ali anteriori con una sottile bordatura chiara al margine anteriore. Papilio in latino significa farfalla, mentre machaon è il nome conferito alla specie in onore di Macaone, celebre medico della mitologia, figlio di Esculapio, dio della medicina ed a sua volta fratello di Podalirio, anch'egli medico. Maschio: colore giallo con nervature e ampi disegni trasversali neri. Fascia postdiscale contenente una sfumatura gialla nelle anteriori e blu nelle posteriori. Grossa macchia arancio nell'angolo anale delle posteriori. Bordo esterno delle posteriori dentato con una coda in corrispondenza della terza nervatura mediana. Femmina: simile al maschio ma generalmente più grande Rovescio: colore giallo con disegni simili al dritto, ma decisamente più chiari. Bruco: verde con anelli neri punteggiati di giallo, si nutre di Apiaceae, come ad esempio il finocchio e la carota. Se disturbato, estroflette da dietro la testa un paio di ghiandole a forma di corno (osmaterium), che emettono un odore repellente che tiene lontani i predatori. Le piante nutrici sono: Daucus carota, Foeniculum vulgare, Pastinaca sativa Ruta graveolens Distribuzione e habitat:? Europa, Asia temperata e Giappone, regioni artiche e sub-artiche del Canada e degli Stati Uniti, tutta Italia. specie termofila, si rinviene in zone umide, ambienti aperti e soleggiati dalla pianura alla media montagna. 0-3000 m. Periodo di attività: da marzo a settembre con una o più generazioni annuali in accordo con la latitudine e l'altitudine.

Max, did you know that? It is he, I had never actually posted because it was already done with the same roost, I waited a bit before I do it as well, as you well remember in May there were many perches and he was placed on ' grass, that among other things I think I had brought him :-)

Great nice shot, as always well done. Only piccolossimo note: for the green leaf (which rests a paw) is perhaps a bit 'pushy and cut so it is not much, but probably if you choose so there has been some reason. Compliments. I dream about these photos! Hello!
