australian swallowtail butterfly papilio ambrax on red flweors of bougainvillea

Butterfly IMG 8713 - This beautiful Australian swallowtail butterfly, Papilio ambrax, found the brightly coloured 'flowers' of a Bougainvillea irresistible. The plant's flowers are, in reality, the tiny white blooms that are almost inconspicuous among the masses of colourful bracts that surround them and that make this plant as much in demand by gardeners as the nectar of its flowers is to some species of butterflies.
