Beautiful butterfly was on top of a thistle in the Australian Capital Territory at the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. Just there for a moment, I was only able to do one picture before it took off. I'm leaning towards Papilo anactus - please advise.
Forested region dominated mostly by eucalpyt and gum trees. There were some flowering plants and shrubs nearby.
This was on a lookout on top of a hilltop that described the surrounding area as it was recovering from a horrific fire that occurred around 2004 or so.
