Hello Shin,
colours and wing patterns of this butterfly are nicely represented by your picture.
I think it is Papilio maacki (family: Papilionidae).
Best wishes, Peter

Looks like a "Black Alpine Swollowtail" Papilionidae, Papilio maackii (menetries).

Beautiful iridescence on wings, lovely clear image...I like the framing over the white flowers as well...

Hello Shin,

Great picture of this marvellous butterfly. Sharpness is good and the colours are superb.
