[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lemon/Common Emigrant (Captopsilia pomana) is a commonly seen in Kerala. The colour varies from light yellow to white, the lemon yellow coloured specimen which is said to be rare has given it the name Lemon Emigrant. As the day progress becomes hotter they fly around and takes short breaks on flowers drinking nectar. I was lucky to get one of them taking a sip.

Thanks for taking a look, Regards Anil

Bonjour Anil.
trés belle image,belle lumiére, amitiés.

Hi Anil,
This is a super picture. The tones and the colors are excellent. The OOF BG and the flower that stands out in such a BG makes this a very pleasant picture to watch!

Hello Anil,
Superb image. No doubt.
I do like the butterfly; overall sharp, very good light displaying the wing structure very well,...
Well composed as well.

Namaste Anil,
this is a wonderful shot, so sharp and with brilliant colours. Also a perfect arrangement - nothing is disturbing from the butterfly and the flower, excellent, thanks

Hi Anil,
This is a splendid shot of the Lemon Emigrant with lovely colours and sharp details. The BG compliments the subjects and highlights them perfectly. Superb lighting and you have captured a classical pose here on the beautiful orange cosmos flower. Very majestic shot. Excellent POV and DOF. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

hi Anil
very nice macro shot of this butterfly, extra blur BG, intense colors and soft light. Great pov, well done.


Anil, Very nice picture. I love the nice reflection from the flower adding an yellow glow to the bottom of the butterfly. Lovely composition.

Hello Anil,
Wonderful composition showing this pretty Lemon butterfly balancing on an orange flower.
Excellent focus on the eye and sharp details.
Very well composed against the plain green background.
TFS and regards, Ulla

The plain green BG offsets the subject very beautifully in this sharp and clear image, Anil.
Superb details on the wings of the Emigrant -- a restless subject I too had the occasion to shoot recently.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Anil,
A very nice close-up macro shot of this beautiful butterfly. The vividly lit flower stage accentuates this picture very nicely. an excellent display of green Hues on both background and most importantly the subject itself. :)

Hello Anil,
pleasantly dim light and a very reduced, simple and clear composition in front of a uniform dark green background make this portrait of the lemon emigrant stand out.
Thank you!
With best regards,
