Papilionidae & Pieridae
Bhutanitis lidderdaleiBhutan Glory, perhaps the world's most iconic butterfly. Typically seen floating above the canopy but at Eaglenest we found them on the ground taking minerals from the trackside, 27 - 31 August.
Lamproptera curiusWhite Dragontail, easily mistaken for a dragonfly in flight, seen here just to the north of Bhalukpong
Atrophaneura polyeuctesCommon Windmill, Ziro, pleasingly settled and not rapidly vibrating its wings like most of its fellow family members do!
Atrophaneura aristolochiaeCommon Rose, Bhalukpong Tourism Complex, rapidly vibrating its wings as it fed
Troides helenaCommon Birdwing, Bhalukpong Tourism Complex, apparently missing its forewings, but simply a fluke shot as it vibrated very rapidly
