[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I finally visited the Jardin des papillons in Grevenmacher. I can recommend this place to all fans of exotic butterflies, as it is probably the only chance of seeing them in Luxembourg.
You can check the details on the website: http://www.papillons.lu/
The Lime Butterfly is a common butterfly in Singapore, and can be found as often around urban areas as well as parks, gardens and on the fringes of the nature areas. Anywhere there is a Lime Bush (Citrus), it is quite likely that one can find this butterfly near by.The butterfly is black with large yellow markings on the uppersides. The underside is predominantly yellow with black markings.
Eggs are laid singly on the Citrus leaves and the young larvae resemble bird's droppings. At the later instars, the larvae become green. The pupa resembles that of the Common and Great Mormons and is attached upright and supported with a silken girdle.

Hi Anna. This is a very good shot of the butterfly indeed. very good colours and detail. it has beautiful markings which you have captured so well.a nice POv/DOF. very well done TFS. good notes too.

Hello Anna,
This is trully a excellent photo of nature
perfect sharpness, awesome colour and details
well done and well seen

Dear Anna, This is very beautiful, excellent colours and well done. TFS.
with best regards.vab.

Very nice image of this butterfly Anna.
Very good color,DOF, focus, and the blured BG is good.
I find the bright BG light streak slightly distracting from the beauty of the subject/composition.
Then again I'm sure some would think it may add interest to the image.

This is most beautiful shot of butterfly,great pov with details and lovely colours,well composed image. well done

beutiful creature! nice composition, pov, focus and details. very well done. tfs

Great use of DOF! I also love the compositional contrast of the dark green blades of grass in the foreground and the blurred yellow blade in the background. :-)

Oh wow, thank you for sharing. I wish I'd known about the "butterfly garden" when I was in Lux. I'll keep it in mind for when I return for a visit. This one is just precious and captured in wonderful detail. Thank you for sharing.
