Found commonly in Asia, this is a beautiful butterfly. I think this is the female. The male has more of white.

Picture: I took this picture on our holiday in the hills. She fluttered about quite a bit and I had to wait and send out my quiet pleas to her to pose for me. I'm glad she did... well, stop and take a drink atleast!
