Name : Lime Butterfly
Scientific Name : Papilio demoleus

Papilio demoleus, the Common Lime Butterfly, is a common and widespread Swallowtail butterfly. It gets its name from its 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 has also been referred to as the Citrus swallowtail, a name it shares with a morphologically similar species, Papilio demodocus which flies in Africa.

Hi Arun,

Hi Arun,
It is a species very similar some of our Papilio, I imagine being the kind that never stand while they suck nectar! ... Then, this is very difficult to photograph these butterflies. Perhaps 1/60s is not the correct time for this shot, but still a good picture and decent look. Well done MF!... This is a difficult subject to shot!

Ciao Arun, fantastic butterfly on a lovely flòwer, fine details, excellent sharpness, splendid light and colors, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio
