[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another image of a butterfly mud-puddling. I took it last year on my school campus. The butterfly was so engrossed in it that it allowed me take my camera really close to it.

Papilio demoleus is a common and widespread swallowtail butterfly. The butterfly is also known as the common lime butterfly, lemon butterfly, lime swallowtail, small citrus butterfly, chequered swallowtail, dingy swallowtail and citrus swallowtail. These common names refer to their host plants, which are usually citrus species such as the cultivated lime. Unlike most swallowtail butterflies, it does not have a prominent tail. The butterfly is a pest and invasive species from the Old World which has spread to the Caribbean and Central America.

Hello Ram,
What a lovely type of swallowtail this Common Lime appears to be. Gorgeous markings and its mixture of colors seems to match the soil perfectly. Tac sharp focus and just the right amount of exposure. It looks like it has exceptionally large eyes. A top quality photo!!
