[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Jay (Graphium doson) is a black, tropical papilionid butterfly with pale blue semi-transparent central wing bands that are formed by large spots. There is a marginal series of smaller spots. The underside of wings is brown with markings similar to upperside but whitish in color. The sexes look alike.

Hello Joy,
Missed this fine butterfly-picture. The Common Jay is such a beauty, would like to see butterflies like this flying around. Lovely decentred composition, fine colours and natural surroundings. The pale sandy soil is excellent as colour-contrast. For me the dark framing is a little bit too large.
Thanks a lot.

Amazing butterfly Joy! Great photo too! Excellent composition and impressive sharpness, The lighting and the colours are fantastic!
