photoblog image Swallowtail

Swallowtail

No eyes on its wings, but it does have swallowtails, and most unusual peach-pink colours. Also, in the lower image there is good evidence of how effectively these critters move polen between the blooms. I think it's name might be Papilio polytes comulus.

I feel sorry for them Ray, it’s like slave labour.
Ray: Nonsense, Lap...they are fully compensated for their efforts with all the food [nectar] they need, and might even get to know a fine young guy/gal with similar interests. What more could they want.
Two more fine shots, what a magnificent butterfly.
Ray: She is a thing of beauty, Brian.
Super pic's Ray.
Ray: I am delighted that you think so, Maestro.
Whatever its name, it's a beauty, Ray - and terrific shots!
The colours are so similar to the painted lady butterfly but it is not at all like them. Two beautiful shots, Ray.
