Great Mormon Papilio memnon © James Laurie Great Mormon swallowtails are found patrolling in forest clearings at about 2-4 meters above the ground where they are very common. They can also be seen amongst human habitation. These large boldly patterned butterflies are fond of visiting flowers of Poinsettia, Jasminum, Lantana, Canna, Clerodendron, and Salvia. They fly up to 7000 feet in the Himalayas, but are most common at low elevations throughout southeast Asia.

The Common Birdwing (Troides helena). In the morning the females sit on foliage high in the trees, while males glide in broad circles above them trying to locate potential mates. Upon discovering a female the male performs an elaborate quivering courtship dance several metres above her, before alighting beside her to copulate. Later in the day both sexes can be seen fluttering around flowering trees and bushes including Lantana.
