Often the home garden is an inexhaustible source of light, colours and cute animals. I saw this beautiful caterpillar (Papilio machaon) on a plant of wild fennel, its food plant. The light and colour at that time was perfect. Macro photography is my great passion and often my garden offers fantastic opportunities. This subject needed my experience, perseverance and patience.
