The Blue Mountain Butterfly is also known as the Mountain Blue, the Blue Emperor and Blue Mountain Swallowtail. With a wingspan of about 5.5 inches (14 cm) it is a large and stunningly beautiful, bright blue and black swallowtail butterfly . Both the male and female have a long ‘swallowtail’ but the females, though very pretty, are more subdued in colour.

I thoroughly enjoyed diving into the vibrant blue for my oil painting of this handsome blue butterfly.   Blue Mountain butterflies are endemic to Australasia and the emblem for Queensland.
