Common Bluebottle (Graphium sarpedon luciatius)

This individual was photographed by a stream close to the Backwoods camp.  It was attracted by a piece of litter which was a similar colour to the green in it's wing. 

Thanks to Chris Vowles and Steve Wiliams for identifying what was originally a mystery butterfly.
