Black body. Black, red and white tails. Black and white wings.
Not really sure on the terms for butterflies external morphology. Corrections most welcome. Waited patiently for this one to settle on a leaf and actually stop flapping its wings. Almost gave up and sat down with a cold beer, then suddenly there it was again, settled on a leaf, inviting the shot! many thanks to the butterfly for the photo opp. Lastly, is it even a butterfly??
