Chequered swallowtails (Papilio demoleus)

Chequered swallowtails (Papilio demoleus), group of three mud puddling, showing the red tornol spots. Butterflies get salts and minerals from mud puddles, usually males because the sperm benefits. When the butterflies mate, the nutrients pass to the female, improving the viability of the eggs thus increasing the chances of passing the strong genes to the next generation. Boulia, central west Queensland, Australia
