[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was so happy to come across a Toothed Sunbeam again this morning, but this time it was a male. This boy loved to stay by a small pond at the Plum Dell, Beiyun Hill. It was a great pleasure to spend about half an hour shooting quite a lot of photographs of this white youth. I found he liked to land on grass or a pebble on the pond edge and would stay there for a long time. He didn't seem to be disturbed by my photographing near him. But sometimes I was tired of him keeping the same pose for quite a long time. So I poked him gently with a straw, but he appeared to be reluctant to move or fly away.
I remember some friends wanted to see its white underside wings. So here's the white wing! Hope you will like him and I'll post another shot of his wings open with orange brown patch patterns.
Thanks for viewing and comments...
