Yes, such pristine specimen and very well photographed. Love the white tiny spots on the underside.

This and the Banded Peacock is not easy to photograph and quick easy to over exposed.

Just had a good, good look again at Papilio peranthus - it is really so beautiful and quite different from other butterflies in its wing patterning...somehow the spray-like effect of the tiny white spots on its wings seem to give a shimmering look to the whole butterfly. Certainly, it will be wonderful to have such gorgeous butterflies introduced into our forests assuming they won't affect our local butterflies....! Thanks for sharing, Lemon.
