The Common Mime (Papilio (Chilasa) clytia) is a Swallowtail butterfly found in South and South-east Asia. The butterfly belongs to the Chilasa group or the Black-bodied Swallowtails. It serves an excellent example of a Batesian mimic among the Indian butterflies. This is one of the common butterfly I see around.

Une très belle photo. Couleurs naturelles. La fleur en avant plan donne un aspect dynamique. Excellent shot...


Your composition is great. The white is a tiny bit over-exposed but white is hard to photograph. YOu did an outstanding job here! Beautiful photo!!!

Nice shot and composition.

Hello Jeruel,
You really have nice common butterflies in your neighborhood ;) I like this delicate composition, excellent details on the insect and those pastel tones of colors. The white is slightly OE but it is a minor nit for such a lovely picture :) Thanks,
