Troides Helena Cerberus or common bird wing

Took this pic with flash to give more details as the lighting was poor around.More of this beauty...

This spectacular "birdwing" has a wingspan which equals and sometimes exceeds that of the famous Rajah Brooke's Birdwing. It is essentially a jungle species but is drawn to cultivated areas where its host plant, Aristolochia tagala, can be found.
The black and yellow colouring is a warning pattern to predators that it is distasteful. The Common Birdwing attains a wingspan of 13 - 15 cm for the males and up to 18 cm for the females. This species is highly sought after by collectors and is a CITES-listed species in Malaysia, Singapore & indonesia.

The female, which is the bigger of the two, has a series of black spots on the hindwing.

Wspanialy motyl, piekne kolory.
Gratuluje !

The image is a bit too dark, GP; I'm distressed about it!
The butterfly is truly beautiful with that combination of red, white, yellow and black.
As an afterthought, I tried to do a workshop to redo the image my way. Hope you will not take it amiss.

Hi Guru,
Great BF capture.
Beautiful macro work.Colors,point of view and sharpness are amazing.

Beautiful butterfly specie. I also feel that the image is a bit too dark; the workshop of ramthakur looks well.
Nice works of BG-FG, with subject clear and crisp.

Cheers, Petru
