[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this photograph of Psyche butterfly in our yard, just next to pond. Light was in my favour. I found Bush in the BG which was 30 mitre away. So it was easy to me to get a totally blurry BG.

Psyche or Leptosia Nina is a small butterfly. Their flight is very weak but it's very difficult to go close to them. So here 300mm helped me a lot to capture this butterfly without disturbing him/her.

Hi, Srikumar. Good timing for this excellent capture of the psyche butterfly in your yard. Excellent exposure and sharpness considering the small size of this beautiful creature sitting delicately on the flower. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Srikumar,
What a lovely photo of this butterfly. Splendid matching colors in a fine composition and great sharpness. The blurred background is very special.

Hello Srikumar,
Thanks for visiting my gallery. I am in a short holiday visiting Danube Delta, a very interesting place for shooting images with birds in their natural habitat. Not very much time for TN.
Exceptional clarity and focus with impressive details. This is a very nice specie of butterflies.

Hi Sricumar

Perfect image, excellent composition and very beautiful BG, great sharpness and details



Hi Srikumar,

The flower is helping to fame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details of the Leptosia Nina butterfly. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
