[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
First I like to say sorry - again a shot without knowing the ID of the animal. It's difficult to find the names of animals in other parts of our wonderful world.

But I were so happy to see this beautiful butterfly free in nature, in Asia you don't need a butterfly-house to see the wonderful big butterflies.

This one was sitting still only for a few seconds, than it flew away to another flower.
Hope you like it.

was für ein hübscher schmetterling, sabine! :-)
und dazu noch in freiheit....
ich frage mich, wie er wohl von vorne aussieht,
er scheint ein paar interessante weiße flecken
am kopf zu haben.
die pflanzen drumherum sehen auch nicht
schlecht aus.
da hast du wieder mal alles gut kombiniert.
bin mal gespannt auf die nächsten schnappschüsse.
danke & grüße, thor.

Hallo, it is ofen not easy to come close to tropical swallow tail butterflies like this one. It is beautifully embedded in the vegetation. Although it has no tails, it is a species of the family Papilionidae. Its name is Chilasa clytia. It is distributed in South and South east Asia including India, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, the Andaman Island and the Philippines. A nice picture of this species.

Hi Wishnu,

Wonderful shot.
Excellent colors, details, sharp, POV andDOF.
I like it.
Very well done!

TFS :-)

Nice butterfly and good composition

Hallo Sabine, sehr schönes Schmetterlingspotrait vom Common Mime (Chlias clytia). Dieser Falter gehört zur Familie der Nymphalidae. Für Dich mal als Hinweis: die Puppe dieses Falters kostet momentan bei London Pupea Supplies 1,50 $. - Dein Fotos ist wie üblich - sehr gut. Bin schon auf die nächsten Leckerbissen gespannt.
Lieben Gruß.

Hello Wishnu,
Very beautiful b-fly!
Excellent. Luv the lush surroundings and colorful frame..Perfect exposure, color, DOF, and sharpness...
Very well done.

Guten Tag,
It seems that when ever you post a photo of an animal without knowing the ID, somebody will pop up and let you know....isn't TN just great!
What an excellent photo with such good detail throughout the entire shot. The colors and sharpness are super. I am just amazed about the aperture you managed to get without any over exposure.

Great natural shot of the Common Mime.

Always difficult to get a good POV in nature, especially when you're only in a country for a short time. You did well.

Hi Wishnu,
great macro!
Really colorfull and detailed.
I like the environment, too.

Hi SAbine, wonderful shot, vith so strong coloures. I see your equipment is excelent and you know how to us it. TFS

Hi Sabine
While it is no great sin not to know the ID of a specific animal, insect, flower, bird, etc. I believe it is our responsibility to update our notes once we do receive the 'correct' ID. However, having said that it is not always as easy or clear cut as one might think. Although I have great respect and appreciation for those who go out of their way (sometimes to extreme lengths) to assist with ID's, I would still caution that the responsibility remains with the photographer to ensure that the information received are correct before any notes are updated or supplied.
I do not know enough about butterflies so it is far from me to start a debate surrounding ID, but I took a look at the different ID's/names that was mentioned above and I have my doubts about their validity. I did a bit of a search on Google and out of all the pictures I could find that was linked to these names as supplied; there was not one that was a perfect match. I include one trusty source just to stress my point here. Scroll down the page and take a look at the photo at the bottom. This is simmilar to most of the images I found on Google's page for images. You will notice that there is quite a bit of variation, some of them probably way off the mark as well, but there is nothing close enough to guarantee a match.
As I said, I do not know enough about butterflies so I am not trying to make an issue out of it. Unfortunately and sadly I am not able to point you in any other direction for I have no better clue what the correct ID might be.
I like your photo with this chocolaty coloured butterfly. Your composition is great and the colours are marvellous. The photo shows great details and excellent contrast and the lighting was very well managed.
Great work and TFS.

Hallo Sabine,
eine große Leistung, in der Tropenhitze - und in der Aufregung, leibhaftig in den Tropen zu stehen - ein scharfes Bild eines dieser schnellen Falter zu schießen. Intensive Farben, perfekte Detailwiedergabe - und eíne schöne Darstellung des gesamten Umfelds - in üppige Vegetation gebettet.
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,


Hi Sabine,
Great macro! Sharp and detailed, nice contrasting colours.
Thanks for sharing!

Wow!beautiful species,never seen before...so clourful...
Well done.

Hi Sabine,
A fiest in colours! Rain forest life at its best, very well captured as usual! I bet you had a great time over there, with an unending variety of subjects in front of your lens!
Very well composed, super colours and details!

Wow ! What a wonderful and interesting butterfly that you have very well captured ! Don'y worry for ID, on TN often we share information but sometime we can ask help ;-) Superb colors and sharpness. Congratulations Sabine and thanks for sharing.

Hi Sabine,
I Missed your pictures a lot( coz i did not have much time) great capture , you must be loving your trip to Asia (BTW are you still in Burma?).
Great picture of a butterfly in its natural habitat.
You wonder and appreciate not having a butterfly park in Asia but i would like to add that, i would love to have a butterfly park here, it not only helps in spreading awareness of these beautiful insects but also in saving them from Habitat loss!!)

Photo well composed, nice colors, good details. In my opinion the contrast could be better, but it's not nessesery. Good effect.

Well done.
