[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For lack of a better perspective, I post this shot, which seems to do the job of showing off the butterfly for its colours quite distinctively.
I've seen a couple of these lately, and they stand out pretty distinctively from the Common Lime, the Common Crow or the Striped Blue Crow.
So what's the ID...?
Please assist...

Thanks for stopping by!

excellent sharpness and details, beautiful luminosity,

Hi Goldy.
You have pictured subject which is so difficult for shooting but wonderful for looking. Both butterfly and plant re fine and your have presented them very well. Focus is not precise but conditions for focusing were very difficult. POV and composition of the image are excellent. My best wishes and TFS.

This is a Common Jay (Graphium doson). Nice capture as it is a fast flying butterfly.

bonjour Goldy
a fine capture with a very beautiful bright coloration
the colors of the wings of this butterfly are superb
great pose and composition
Have a good night

Love the gentle soft colours; great control. Nice MACRO, indeed.
Love the lights too. Sharp & BEAUTIFUL.
This is a COMMON JAY.
It looks like a swallow tail; but, it's not.
Greetings from Canada from,
