18-20.7.09 Papilio machaon syriacus פרפר זנב סנונית נאה

We were in Bat Shlomo, when Omer noticed these beautiful pupa and caterpillars on the same bush. When we came back home, we read that it was a Papilio machaon syriacus.

Look at this belt!19.7.09The caterpillar is preparing the "belt" and checking well that it can bear him for the time he will become a pupa:
20.7.09: Now he is waiting and wondering... soon he will become a pupa.

There it is! Unfortunately I missed this step, it happened very quickly while I was beading with my friend.
and this is the leftovers of his caterpillar period:

Here are some more pictures from Omer's parent garden:
