How beautiful he is Alok.

You're so lucky to have him just sit there for you with his wings open!!!

Many thanks for showing him to us my friend.

A beautiful close-up of this Tortoiseshell. Awesome colors.
I recently saw my first Old World swallowtail (Papilio machaon) this year but it was too far away for a picture. My absolute favorite here.

Superb macro! Seeing the scales in such detail makes it seem like the butterfly has been dusted with gold flakes
