[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

If a butterfly's wings are touched, some of the scales can rub off. The slipperiness and easy detachment of butterfly scales may help butterflies escape predators. If a butterfly loses some of its scales, it will be able to fly; however, if a butterfly is over-touched, other damage could be done to the wing which could prevent the butterfly from flying.

See hospital to know something about fixing butterflies wings.

Hi Carmem

This butterfly has seen better days. Well done on a great image. DoF is excellent. :-)

What a nice shot.
i like the colours and composition
well done. Carme.

Hi Carmen

I think he has lost more than a few scales.

Pity would have been a good pic...but you can only photograph what is available at the time.
