[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Neptis hylas papaja (Common Sailor):
The Common Sailor is one of the several black-and-white "Sailors" and can sometimes be confused with Neptis leucoporos cresina or the Short Banded Sailor (Phaedyma columella singa) when in flight.
It is not as common as previously thought, and the butterfly is only seen in localised areas within the nature reserves.

Kind of good POV and composition.
I think I have some problem regarding the ID.

This guy is more like the Glassy Tiger we found in Sri Lanka. Just find the detail in the following place.

You can find the information regarding Common Sailor also in following place.

Hope you would come up with your idea or explanation regarding this.


Hi Sarah, Nice capture of this Butterfly. I like your border on this shot. Would of been nice to see the top of his wing in the picture, and a little space before the border, but no matter, it doesnt detract from the picture. Goodwork.

Hi Sarah.
I like very much your picture.Composition and color are great.A balance of contrast and color is my intervention, with your permission.Thank you.

A lovely POV - great colors and focus although I found the frame a bit distracting.

Nice post!


Bravo Sarah

Very nice capture.. The position of the butterfly is definitively inviting as well as the contrast with the colours of the flowers.. well done!
