methinks it could be a "Birdwing" butterfly (Aetheoptera)try www.nagypal.net for a load of colour descriptions and pictures...sorry I cannot be more specific...lovely thing though!!!

Hello Pierre,
Looks like this little fellow is a bit shy, hiding from the camera!
Interesting motion blur and nice framing, good colours!

Bonjour Pierre, oui il est très timide. Pas facile de prendre des papillons au Jardin Botanique. Je suis sur que tu en as des meilleures que celle-là. Bravo pour l'effort.
