Graphium agamemnon

Graphium agamemnon
Copyright ©2004, Yvonne Steinmann HoF ¤ $

This was taken in the Papiliorama Kerzers (Switzerland) - a tropical greenhouse, where butterflies of all five continents are bred for people to come and admire. In latin this butterfly is called (if I am identifying it correctly that is) Graphium Agamemnon (geschweifter Eichelhäher in German) and originates from Southern Asia.

That's a good one!

Interesting-looking butterfly against a perfect background (or rather, non-background). Kind regards, Eva

You've inspired me with this one, I wanna know where my nearest butteryfly house is!

Very nice shot, I love the "silky" detailing of the wing. I wonder, have you used software to reduce the noise there must have been at 400 ISO? I made a few shots myself at 400, but there definitely was a lot more noise than in this image.
