papilio demolion {Banded Swallotail}

Papilio demolion (Banded Swallowtail). Photographed at Kipandi Butterfly Park.

The Papilio Demolion is a mid-sized Asian (from Thailand to the Philippines) butterfly of 9~10 cm. This one was taking a break. This was shot handheld, with most of the shots being blur.  Very pleased to get this one sharp. I am keeping the text very brief.  However, if you like to find out more, here are the links:-

Internet resources quote between 89 to 100 species in the genus. The genus was first published in 1825 by C.L. Blume.
