[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My today's shot shows a large and beautiful butterfly known as Common Birdwing (Troides helena cerberus ). This butterfly was bigger than the Dead Leaf Butterfly which i presented a few days back. These butterflies are known to feed on Aristolochia tagala commonly known as Indian birthwort. Some varieties are known to be feeding on plant lice too.

I took this shot from about 4-5 feet distance. This large butterfly was hanging on to green leaves at an angle of about 80 degrees above my head. As my shot shows there was a strong beam of light over the leaves this butterfly was sitting on. It resulted in some poor details over eyes and its antennae.But that was something beyond my camera's capabilities. I did change my exposure's setting though.

Thanks for viewing,
Best Regards

Hi Akbar. Perfect spread here. A good subject. I think there could be a bit more space in front of him. Lots of detail and good colour. I like! TFS Trevor
