Finally. It's good to have a photo of this beauty and even to know its name. I've waited for this for almost a year now. Yes, I agree that it is quite common. But that's not good enough for a photographer because it seldom lands. You see something frequently and you can't have it. It's torturous.
Thanks bayucca!

Papilionidae, Papilioninae, Leptocircini, Graphium angolanus baronis.
Quite common in Africa and it is a swallowtail butterfly ;-)
