I have captured this "Eyed Pansy" (Junonia orithya) butterfly in our yard early in the morning.

* Junonia orithya or Eyed Pansy is a nymphalid butterfly with many subspecies occurring from Africa, through southern and south eastern Asia and in Australia.

* In India it is called "Blue Pansy"
* But in Southern Africa it is known as "Eyed Pansy".

Hello Srikumar,
Absolutely gorgeous specimen showing an array of mixed colors and intricate markings. The blurred BG is a wonderful bonus and exposure is perfect.

Hi Srikumar,

The flower is helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details of the Eyed Pansy. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi,Srikumar. Beautiful capture of the butterfly Junonia orithya or Eyed Pansy with excellent colors, texture good composition in its natural habitat and above all a nice presentation. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sri,
Very nice composition and fabulous DoF. Good colours and PoV as well. Probably the right wings are a little bit blurred (at least not sharp enough), and the canvas is too thick in my opinion, but a good photo nevertheless.
Kind regards, László

Hello Srikumar,
