Once in a life (Papilio memnon - local subspecies on Malipunyo)
The span of this butterfly is 20 cm! And allowed me to make the photo. It happens perhaps once in a life

My wife said, "This was taken at the Butterfly
Farm in Bohol ???"

Butterflies seem to be a controversial subject here on Summitpost, yes?

Some folks love to hate them, but I've
always admired their Natural Beauty.

This was taken in the nature, in the jungle of Malipunyo, file miles further of the other photo you likes with the banana leaves. No, a photo from a Butterfly Farm really has not much to do with SP! ;)

I admire your courage ..

If you got past the rumored anti-government
rebels, you must have nine lives.

My wife was born in the Philippines.
She keeps telling me: "It's a jungle out
there !!!" : )

Yes, it is! You can imagine what a "shocking" view it was for me, having seen only European butterflies before
