Just spotted this on the wall outside our front door. Don't recall having seen one like it before. Anyone put a name to it?

Ever had the feeling you are being watched and on looking up discover that your instincts are right?
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

In April 2018 I posted a photo of a lizard who had caught a praying mantis. On that occasion the insect escaped but I doubt if the one below will be so lucky.

As my wife was taking her car out of the garage this morning she called me to see this newly 'hatched' Swallowtail.
