swalltail butterfly papilio ambrax on red flowers of bougainvillea

Swallowtail butterfly IMG 8726 - This beautiful Australian 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.
