Common Jay

Graphium doson

Notes:

Nuwan Chathuranga identified, left to right: a Blue Bottle (Graphium sarpedon), 3 CommonJjays (Graphium doson) , a Five Bar Swordtail (Pathysa antiphates) and again a Common Jay. The butterflies seem to be attracted by the hiker's colorful sneaker. In Mulu National Park.
