[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Common Emigrant butterfly. I have taken this picture in “Butterfly Park” situated in Bannerghatta National Park, near Bangalore. This butterfly is common specie in India. I think this butterfly is resting on a flower, folding its wings. This is a handheld shot. I used Nikon D-200 and nikor 28-105mm lens, which has built in macro. There is a very rare chance of seeing this butterfly opening its wings while resting. It always closes its wings while resting.

Hello Arjun,
Nice shot. Sharp and focused ,but could have done better with the use of flash. Still a beautiful composition.
TFS, Smitha.

the lighting here is very good coming from a quarter point highlighting the wing and head
with f8 you made the best of the depth of field
background well handled..not obvious
