Painted Jezebel

Painted Jezebel is not easy to photograph as they usually flutter high up at the canopy and when are they nectaring, they only stay for for a few seconds.

I was lucky as this pristine individual landed on an Asystasia flower not too far from me and I managed to take 2 shots before it flutters off.
