Richmond Birdwing Butterfly - Ornithoptera richmondia

This male birdwing butterfly was feeding high in the treetops, so was quite difficult to photograph. The habitat they favour is subtropical rainforest or littoral rainforest. They are locally restricted due to food sources declining through habitat destruction.
