I`ve never seen this one before, but it`s a beauty!
Nice and sharp photo with good colors.
colours and wing patterns of this butterfly are nicely represented by your picture.
I think it is Papilio maacki (family: Papilionidae).
Best wishes, Peter
Looks like a "Black Alpine Swollowtail" Papilionidae, Papilio maackii (menetries).
Beautiful iridescence on wings, lovely clear image...I like the framing over the white flowers as well...

A warm welcome to TN.
This is a gorgeous butterfly.
You managed to capture the irridescence of the beautiful colors.
A perfect pose showing all the markings in perfect symmetry.
Excellent details and composition.
TFS. : )
