Other contributions to the photo contest 7. Pomelo larva

August 21, 2010

The Papilio demoleus larva is sometimes seen crawling on the actual pomelo fruits (Citrus maxima). In Thailand it is a notorious pest on any member of the orange family. Still, the adult butterfly is splendid and the larva looks funny when trying to mimic bird poo. This funny and pedagogic picture was taken at Dokmai Garden by Mike See, Chiang Mai.
