[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the Lime Buterfly (Papilio demoleus). In other countries where it is native this papilionid is not considered a threat, but in Dominican Republic where it competes for food with native butterflies and reproduces alarmingly fast, it is now considered an invasive and dangerous species.

Hi Pedro, very good shot of the 2 butterflies. It is interesting to see the 2 different colour tones of their wings. Well shown, thank you

A great capture of this pair mating.
Colorful butterflies captured with sharp details and excellent light in an excellent composition.
Very interesting that the two butterflies have a slight difference in color saturation on their wings. Is that a gender issue?
TFS. : )
