Lime Butterfly

Papilio demoleus demoleus

Habitat:

A patch of wildflowers in the front lane near my house.

Notes:

This is my 1st time photographing it after two years. It was always present but sadly our timelines didn't match and I could never capture it. This time, I found it feeding on some wildflowers. It was consistently fluttering wings even while feeding, making it harder to capture. The last picture shows it in midflight, taking off from a flower.
