A Butterfly

(A post just to assure myself blogger beta is working.)
Saw this one recently in Coorg - the butterfly must have been nearly a foot across wingtip to wingtip. Big enough to occupy the frame even when I used a 20mm wideangle lens. I waited until it started fluttering its wings to make sure it was for real!

I too have just the same word -- Wow!

Hi Bart and pipa, when I saw the butterfly, Wow was the word on my mind too.
That was the largest insect I had ever seen.
