Golden Birdwing Butterflies

Golden Birdwing (Troides aeacus) is a large beautiful butterfly, with a wingspan of 120mm to 190 mm, occasionally seen in the nature reserves of Thailand. For long time it was one of our most sought target and we had many failed attempts to click this butterfly as it was seen flying at very high altitudes (beyond our lens' reach) every time we encountered. Our continuous effort finally rewarded with this shot when my friend Prem located this pair from a moving vehicle and promptly asked the driver to stop, during one of our nature tours in Thailand.
