The Common Mormon (Papilio polytes) is a common species of swallowtail butterfly widely distributed across Asia. This butterfly is known for the mimicry displayed by the numerous forms of its females which mimic inedible Red-bodied Swallowtails, such as the Common Rose and the Crimson Rose.

Hello Siggi,
Beautiful macro of this butterfly. Sharpness an details are marvellous. A bit more contrast in the colours is possible, I think. Good centred composition.
Have a nice weekend,
