|The Southern Birdwing (Troides minos) is a large and striking Swallowtail butterfly endemic to Peninsular India. With a wingspan of 140-190mm, it is the largest butterfly found in southern India.The species is more common in the Western Ghats, which is a biodiversity hotspot with a high degree of endemism in many taxa. It is much sought after by collectors and is a highlight of many butterfly-tours in the Western Ghats.[Wikipedia]|

Good to see this lovely Birdwing captured by you beautifully. tfs.
An excellent captured. Very pretty butterfly with colours and design. Great harmony. All details perfect. TFS.
A fine capture of a richly coloured b.fly with the accent on the body rather than the wings Babujayan, the delicate flower it feeds on is in perfect concordance with all around colour scheme, good job my friend.
