The Banded Swallowtail (Papilio demolion)

A real active fast flying butterfly, I often see it flying around flower to flower rarely taking a rest, taking a photo of it is challenging, I was lucky today, it is not often I can find one remaining stationary long enough for me to take a few photos.

Swallowtails are from the family Papilionidae, as the name suggests this particular species has tails that resembles tails swallow.
This specimen appears to be a male with its brownish black upper side
