Common Gull .
Cepora nerissa nerissa (Fabricius).
Pieridae family.
wing span: 50-65mm.

Today morning I was in lalbagh and met some of my friends (tn members).
we had nice morning shooting many subjects. I was the last one to leave the place.
When I was about to leave, saw this common gull busy visiting the flowers and after few attempts (handheld) got this frame in good lighting conditions.
Yesterday I posted the same species taken earlier at the same place.
Here one more view of this beautiful, colorful and energetic Gull for you.

Hello Nagaraj,
What a beautiful view of this yellow butterfly on a yellow flower and against an olive background - gorgeous colours! Excellent focus and sharp details too and very nicely framed.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Nagraj,
Excellent closed-wing portrait of C. nerissa taken from a perfect POV with fine sharpness. The composition is simple and pleasing with the fine bokeh BG that sets it off well.
Nice one Nagraj and thanks for sharing it!

Ciao Nagaraj,
splendida immagine di Pieride, eccellenti POV e composizione con un otttimo OOF BG, ottime anche nitidezza e definizione dei dettagli, molto belli i colori.

Hello Nagraj uncle, Very beautiful shot and an excellent view. Vignesh

Hi Nagaraj, beautiful butterfly with fine details and splendid sharpness, great macro with wonderful blurry BG, very well done, bravo, ciao Silvio

A perfect balance of colours Nagaraj...In pastel as well which makes it soft in feeling but not soft in clarity. Very well noted too!

Hello Nagaraj.
Wonderful picture!
Splendid chromatism and excellent details.
It is really a beautiful butterfly!
I liked this BG detaching the insect.
Congratulations and thanks for sharing!

Hello Nagraj. Another excellent shot of this Common gull in closed wings. Excellent perch and captured well against the silenced background. IMHO, a tighter crop would be ideal but you have done really well here for TN. TFS and best regards. Jusni

Hi Nagraj,
another very pretty shot with a delicate feel to it, your POV is well chosen to create that lovely neautral background. It might be me, but i think the whites on the wings may be a little OE, but really, thats a minor thing.
