      Thanks. Actually there are several “forms” of the Great Mormon, so you might have seen one of the different forms. It’s one of the most common swallowtails in Asia.

    I saw what I believe was a female Common Mormon feeding on the same plant as in one of your photos (a very sweet smelling form of Jasmine?). This was in Chiang Mai, out near the Central Airport Plaza. I only had a compact camera with me and failed dismally to get a decent photo of it as it was moving so fast and, of course, not settling on flowers to drink the nectar but more or less hovering.
