A Butterfly from Greece via Finland!

This pretty butterfly arrived on June 17 from Finland.  The photo was taken by the sender in Greece last year, and made into this postcard.  I did a search, and found that the butterfly is a Scarce Swallowtail (Iphiclides podalirius):

She says it took a while to get a good photo of the butterfly, but she likes this one.  I do, too.  It is called a Scare Swallowtail.

This little bird looks very happy.  Is it some sort of Finnish swallow I wonder?
