[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was waiting for a boat in Mulu National Park when this gorgeous butterfly landed on one of my trekking shoes.
It is a Jewelled Nawab (Polyura delphis).

The Jewelled Nawab is a butterfly found in India that belongs to the Rajahs and Nawabs group, that is, the Charaxinae group of the Brush-footed butterflies family. This butterfly has multiple red spots bordered by yellow bands on a metallic white background. The wingspan is about 2.75 inches (70mm).

Hello Sophie,

Welcome to TN!, A photograph good enough to start. It's a very beautiful species, its colors are downright impressive. Excellent pose and good crop and composition.

I seem a little light, but the picture is good.

For future photos do not forget to include EXIF, is useful for exchanging views and suggestions.

We hope to see more pictures of you soon.

Greetings and thanks for sharing!
