Golden Birdwing Butterfly
Troides aeacus, the golden birdwing, is a large butterfly belonging to the swallowtail (Papilionidae) family. Its wingspan can be 5.9" to 6.2". A large butterfly, I would say. It is found in northern India, Nepal, Burma, China, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Taiwan, Cambodia, peninsular Malaysia and Indonesia. So I admit, I took this shot in the Butterfly Conservatory in Key West. Maybe one day I can get one in its homeland.....
