[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this Lime Butterfly (Papilio demoleus) in our yard. It was flying very fast and most of the time was hiding itself behind the flowers and leaves. Light was in my favour although.
This butterfly is also known as Lemon butterfly, Lime Swallowtail etc.

The butterfly is tailless and has a wingspan 80-100mm. The upper hind wing has a red tornal spot with blue edging around it.

Hi Srikumar,this butterfly is a magnificent beauty! And the composition too is lovely despite some blurred leaves and the butterfly a bit oversharpened and with the body half hidden.A great gift to the fans like me...butterflies are very rare in these months on TN..hehe..have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
