At last!

Two-tailed pasha (Charaxes jasius)

 

One of the most exotic butterfly species in Europe. As soon as I spotted this one, I started chasing it around until I got satisfying captures. Luckily, although I scared it off lots of times, it kept coming back to perch on the wooden bench. So at last (hence the title of the photo) I managed to get this shot with its wings open! Don't miss the other photo of the underside of the wings, too.

 

Best viewed On Black, Large.
