yes kdpicturemaker. I love this one... Not so many green butterflies around, especially this electric green!

Always amazed at the variety & jewel colours of butterflies.

Haven't heard of that one Martin. Just looked it up. Looks quite a bit like our tailed Jay, doesn't it? Is it a speedy Gonzales like the Jay? The only other ones I have managed to photograph have been with a very fast shutter speed when they were feeding. They never stay still - well only like you say, while mating!

Nice work,
Pam. I think that is the only time they stop long enough for a photo.
I saw macleays swallowtail today :)
