Hi Friends,
Here is my Painted Lady, from my archive, a Butterfly very suitably named (Scientific Name-Vanessa carudi).A well known and widely distributed butterfly,also known for powerful Migration !Usually inb Karnataka and souther region of India it is seen just after rainy season. At mornings this beautiful lady can be seen basking,with little disturbance also she take to wings and settle down not far away from her earlier place !

I met this beautiful paintd Lady on one fo my morning walk which usually covers a bird watching and butterfly watching sessions. This fine lady made me kneel down and crawl towards her to fill her beauty to my black box!

Hi Ananth,
Outstanding shot of this beautiful Painted Lady. Very impressive colours, details and markings on its wings and you have captured it in a fine pose. Superb lighting and exposure and I like the natural setting here. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hi Ananth,

Nice clean shot of the butterfly! Very good image with excelent DOF covering whole butterflye's body and wings. Therefore good details of the body can be seen as well as the structure and color pattern of the wings.

May be a littel to much noise in the background.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Ananth, fantastic painted lady with splendid colors, superb details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
