I left the caterpillar that preceded this beautiful butterfly to munch away on the leaves of my kaffir lime. A few weeks later, I was rewarded by the sight of this beautiful Orchard Swallowtail (Papilio aegeus) drying its wings. I wish I'd been in time to watch it emerge.
Gorgeous! FAV

Beautiful capture Robin, I believe their numbers are down due to garden spraying. Fav :)

Beautiful! I don't think I'd have been able to watch something munching on my leaves...but I'm glad you did!
