Lucky me to witness the precious moment. Sorry for the imperfect capture as they were hanging high up a tree.
This is Hong Kong's largest butterfly and recognized as internationally endangered and is listed in the Protection of Endangered Species Ordinance locally in Hong Kong.

Hello Waisum,
Really it was precious moment,but you have tried, and got a nice capture with clarity,My regards,_Joy.

Hello Luk,
This is not an imperfect capture at all. In fact, it is quite fabulous. The sharpness, colours, details are all there with no sign of lack of depth of field either. Very well done !!!
