Papilio demodocus (I)

A Citrus Swallowtail nectaring on a hypoestes in the garden. A movie picture because they are never still when on the wing. The light band can vary from a very pale yellow to an ochre. The lunule distal to the costal hind wing eye-spot is all yellow, making this  male. But more on this sp. later.
