A butterfly for Christmas

A lovely symbol of the Insect World, and why not of the Christmas also.

Parnassius apollo, one of the most beautiful and unfortunately threatened with extinction, with its trademark colors and spots: white for the snow, black for the longest and coldest nights in the year (for the Northerners at least), and red for…the Coca Cola trucks? It actually has the same colors as Santa 😉

Merry Christmas!

 

PS: The image is a multi-stack multi-frame mosaic, done with a Canon 550D, Sigma 50mm and Wemacro rail.
