Swallowtail visit

Today a rainy day was expected, as we were told by the weatherman.
Unexpectedly a became beautiful sunny day.
Lots of sunshine.
To my amazement I saw the Swallowtailbutterfly
(Papilion Machaon) (Koninginnepage) flying again in my garden.
hiphopping from one flower to another.
Such a surprise!
Also because this summer is not a very warm summer.
Swallowtails like warm temperatures and live mostly in the more warmer southern parts of Europe.
