skulls and butterfly wings…

Up close and personal with an Andhra Butterfly. Found it dying outside my door hence the detail i was able to capture.


Is it just me or can you spot the image of a skull in amongst the inside wing pattern above? …and i was amazed by the long curly tongue.


It’s a Papilio Demoleus or Lime Butterfly. Not rare but absolutely exquisite. it has a life span of about 5 days.
