[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
First of all, I'm sorry to have cropped the length of this pic too much so as to cut my lovely Sailer's wing tip a little bit due to the required limitation of 800 pixels in length. It was two months ago when I took this photograph. I remember there was a lot of sun that day and you can see I captured this butterfly from a lower point of view so that I could see the beautiful patterns very clearly on the almost transparent underside wings. It was really a wonderful view.
A very brief information of this species:
Neptis hylas, sometimes known as the Common Sailer, is a species of nymphalid butterfly found in South Asia, Southeast Asia and South China. It has a characteristic stiff gliding flight achieved by short and shallow wingbeats just above the horizontal.

Hello Mr.John,
Nice to see an experimental shot which shows us frontal part of this Butterfly.Nice sharpness with beautiful dark BG.Like its pose.

I think if you reduced the pixel little bit,you need not to cut its wing.What you think?

Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice day,
