Mating flying 求偶婚飛

It was supposed to be raining today. But there was not much rain falling in Taipei and still very cloudy. I did not plan for any shooting activity for today. However it was quite good in the afternoon and I tried to catch some butterfly shots in the garden of my community. I saw this couple of Great Mormon flying around before mating and got some nice shots to share~

今天天氣陰陰的,下午倒是略略見到一點陽光,沒有特別衝景計畫,就在社區院子拍拍蝴蝶。遇到這對大鳳蝶正在求偶婚飛,時間大約持續了一分鐘,比較特別的是雌蝶為「無尾型」(之前拍過的「尾突型」大鳳蝶雌蝶,請見下圖)。
