Dainty or Dingy Swallowtail Australian butterfly

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore

 

17/2/2011-This guy wanted to be photographed,as firstly he flew past my window and I actually saw him(which never happens)then I had to put my shoes on.Grab my camera and run around the back garden,thinking I lost him.Then I found him broad as day and started snapping away.

Thanks for your comments :)

21/9/2011- edit update:7 months on and I have never seen this butterfly or species again,and it was the only time I saw one like this in for years in my current address.So makes it special,glad I had my camera on me that day and was able to record him in time so he can live now forever :)
