[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a wonderful blue Ulysses (Papilio ulysses). For its own protection, as soon as it lands, it folds its wings to hid that wonderful color. I tried very hard to capture it in flight, with no luck. But this does give you a wonderful view of the underside of its wings.

This shot was also taken at the Coffs Harbour Butterfly Centre.
