[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Glassy Tiger Butterfly

Wingspan 65-80 mm. The sexes are very similar. The male has scent patches on the hind wing; the pouch-shaped patch on vein 1 is larger than the one on vein 2. Both are more swollen and visible on the underside than on the upper side.

The upper side has numerous light gray streaks towards the base of the wings. The markings towards the outer margins are more or less oval .

The marks on the underside map well to the markings of the upper side, though some of the markings are lined by additional darker gray areas. Sometimes the markings are ill-defined and blurred.

The shape and size of the markings between specimens varies considerably. Some specimens lack the entire row of submarginal spots on the hind wing.

Hi Ben.
Your picture is true masterpiece. Terrific beauty. Amazing subject. Great refined work. I am impressed with delicateness of colour palette, superb composition, art sharpness of the main subject and wonderfully coloured smooth BG. Bravo and my compliments. All I have. TFS and best regards.

bonjour benyamin
la photo pourrait presque etre humoristique,le papillon semble vouloir mettre son chapeau qui n'est autre que la fleur qu'il butine.
netteté couleur et POV excellents.
