The Thoas is easily confused with the Giant Swallowtail, so I would be only too pleased if anyone wants to tell me that's what it is. I will gladly accept the consensus of opinion.
Although I find it attractive, I wish it hadn't settled on the lantana flower because it's a bit distracting and rather spoils the butterfly's outline.
Thankyou for your interest in this series.
Pamela.

Posing perfectly, the butterfly, leaves and flowers combine into a very harmonious whole.
