Lime Butterfly Papilio demoleus malayanus

Papilio demoleus malayanus (Lime Butterfly)

Spotted in clementi. I think this has to be one of the most common butterfly in HDB estates. the number of lime and pomelo plants around provide ample food for the caterpillars which when young are a perfect example of mimicry.
the young caterpillars look like bird poop. haha really! when bigger they change to a 'lime' green.
