Female Great Mormon butterfly (Papilio memnon - achates or agenor?), Vietnam.­

Papilio memnon is a polymorphic species in which the female can take different forms (and it has sexual dimorphism, i.­e.­ male and femal differ).­ This seems to be the female form the form distantianus.­

Taking a butterfly in flight is quite hard, really!
