Not a wasp, but beautiful nonetheless! Memoirs of a summer by the sea.

Scarce swallowtail butterfly (Iphiclides podalirius) on a saltwater-sprinkled bush, Croatia.

@albertcardona love seeing these. Swallowtails are quite common out on the islands where we live. Here a happy bunch of larvae munching away!

@MarcusStensmyr What a photo, it’s often nigh impossible to capture both the bug and the landscape yonder for context and contrast. Excellent!
