Hi all,

This was another picture shot at Butterfly Garden Vlinder aan de Vliet te in Leidschendam.This was shot with a stand and by using a fill in flash!
Even though this is similar to owl butterfly in size i dont think it is an owl butterfly!. Any help with id is welcome.This park is created by an individual who has spent a lot of money in getting stuffs from all over the world and it is amazing with a temperature controlled enclosure with lot of books and info on butterflies. You can find more info here

(The site is in dutch!)

Hi Goutham,
Wonderful shot of this beautiful butterfly. You are having a gala time there with these butterflies, feel jealous sometimes. Lovely colour tones here and amazing patterns on its wings. I like your POV here to portray it. Superb composition. Kudos.

Hello Goutham,

Wow! What a remarable picture of this butterfly! You mastered very well the flash here letting us see naturally the magnificent colors and details of the wings! The only thing maybe is that we don't see very well the antennas...

Lovely compo with that vertical presentation!
