Beauty!

I took this photo and made the video yesterday on  a shrub by the driveway. I didn't know what it was called then, so I looked for and found the ID to be Common Mime( Papilio clytia). This is my post for this week's Macro Monday.

  9. I thought he had sat still for you to get such a crisp shot - but apparently not, judging by the video!

  12. Nice macro. It is interesting the way he curls up in the video. I don't think I have ever seen a butterfly do that before.
