Up close and personal with an African Migrant

Sourced it’s name from Butterflies for Africa as I know nothing about butterflies.   Butterflies for Africa is situated in Pietermaritzburg, Kwa Zulu Natal.  It looks amazing!!   A definite place to visit when we are down that way.

This beauty is about the same size as the Citrus Swallowtail, which I featured in a previous post, so it’s quite large, with pale green outer wings and white on the inner side.    Couldn’t get the white open wings as it darted about rapidly from flower to flower and when it settled the wings were tightly closed
