Blue Mountain Swallowtail from Indonesia -- Papilio ulysses

Native to Indonesia, Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands, this wonderful butterfly uses structural color within its wing scales to create a brilliant blue coloration.  The wing scales reflect back the blue wavelengths of light, but do not contain their own pigment.
