[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This fairy-like butterfly is uncommon in Hong Kong. The wingspan is only 40-50mm, the smallest species among other local swallowtails. I was very excited to discover it in an area not been reported for its existence.
The White Dragontail can be found in South Asia and Southeast Asia. It belongs to the Dragontails genus, Lamproptera, of the Swallowtail (Papilionidae) family.

A splendid butterfly indeed. The light is very pleasing, with just a touch of overexposure.
Good depth of field. Too bad the BG is a little cluttered on the right and there is a stem in front of the right wing's end.
Overall a very nice picture of a beautiful insect.
