[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Considered to be the archetypical danaine of India, Plain Tiger has been studied with in greater detail than other members of its subfamily occurring in India. While reading more about it, I found its method of defence against predators very interesting.
During larval stages it ingests unpalatable alkaloids, which makes it smell and taste terrible. It flies slowly and leisurely, generally close to the ground and in a straight line, thus not only making it a very good model for photographers :) , but also giving a would-be predator ample time to recognise and avoid attacking it.
A butterfly species that mimics it and gets advantages from it is Danaid Eggfly which closely resembles to Plain Tigers.
Another high point for this butterfly is its tough, leathery skin, which can survive occasional attacks from its inexperienced predators.

Hi Richa,

Welcome to TN!

This macro is a very good projection of the foreground. you have known very well take the angle and colorful butterfly to capture much of the characteristics of it. With regard to the composition, I feel pretty good although a little tight over the cut. It is also important to avoid leaving out parts of the insect, such as antennas, which were cut on the left side.

There is also some noise, product (I assume) of the parameters of the ISO you used for capture. This can be corrected at the time of capture, using a lower ISO and adjusting the timing a little higher. You can adjust this by editing the photo details. I have published a little WAS your picture (I hope not bother you, and you will be helpful).

It is important to update the details of your equipment, is also good to see you leave the EXIF of your photos. Here in TN there are many people who know enough of photography and editing, they can help, if handle such data.

They have help me learn a lot in very short time!

I reiterate the welcome to TN!

I congratulate you because you have a good eye for photography.

Continues to share!
