Three Butterflies One Rotten Guava. Two of them are Barons. But I am not sure about the middle one.

Food for Butterflies

Butterflies love fermenting fruit and vegetables. A fruit tree in the garden will attract the butterflies if you allow the fallen fruit to stay on the ground. Put out small amounts of over ripe fruit, any type will do, butterflies will love it mushy and fermenting. Uneaten bananas can be stored in the freezer and defrosted when required. The freezing process will turn them black and the fruit inside will be mushy. Just right for attracting butterflies!

Thanks a lot for viewing.

Hello Haraprasan,
Wonderful shot of this three with such rich colours and impressive sharpness. You have handled the natural lighting very well and the nature darkish BG helps in highlighting the subjects. Very nicely composed.
Best regards Siggi

Hi Haraprasan,

We rarely get to see 3 butterflies and one rotted Guava in one shot!! I especially love the lower butterfly with the open wings. It has elegant colors and details. The clarity and the contrasts of this picture are wonderful.

Hello Haraprasan !
Excellent capture of these 3 butterflies who are feasting on the rotten fruit - it's very interesting. The dull colors of the butterflies are making such an excellent camouflage when they are sitting on the ground like that, and the markings on the wings are beautiful. Excellent details, wonderful composition, great POV. Very well done !

Hi Haraprasan,

Very nice capture with good details.

well Done!

Hello Haraprasan
Nice capture. Well done.

Hi Haraprasan,
Wonderful to get 3 butterflies in one shot. The image is sharp with perfect exposure. Very well done.

It is pure art in nature HP! this lines and patterns in nature catch my eye very well...earth tones and such make it fall into a special genre....I have no words for it, not being an art expert but its quality is very pleasing..
