[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Acraea is a genus of brush-footed butterflies (family Nymphalidae) of the subfamily Heliconiinae. It seems to be highly paraphyletic and has long been used as a "wastebin taxon" to unite about 220 species of anatomically conservative Acraeini. Most species assembled here are restricted to the African region, but some are found in India, Southeast Asia, and Australia.

Hi Chandra, very impressive image of this lovely butterfly.Professionally executed, with great dept of field and balance contrast!The composition is a bit controversial but that's may be a bonus!

Hi Chandra,

Lovely macro of this beautiful butterfly.
The colours are lovely, the detail is great and the background is nicely out of focus.
Great capture and TFS


Ciao Chandra. TFS this handsome unknown, for me! Stunning details and splendid colours against the blurred soft green BG.


Ciao Chandra, splendid butterflt with fantastic colors, excellent sharpness, wonderful blurry BG and fine details, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Beautiful image with lovely colors and fine placement of the Tawny Coster (not Coaster). tfs.

Hi Chandra,

Well composed, good focus, excellent tone and beautiful butterfly!
I met this kind of butterfly with brown, black and white pattern.
You suppress well the noise of the background.
And, the contrast between the front and the background with blurred image draws out a good effect for the whole.
Very excellent work!



Super job here...

I personally love to picture butterflies...
Their delicate beauty never fails to astonish me... I just love to stare at the intricate patters that form on the wings...

Your picture here is allowing me to do just that... :-)

Hi Chandra,
thanks for your critique, i really appreciate it as it helps me a lot in enhancing my shot.
This one above is lovely with excellent sharpness and very natural view. The branches gives a lively graphic making your presentation very attractive and pleasant.
Nice soft smooth blurry background also make the subject stands out wonderfully.


Like a beautiful painting the soft background really enhances the butterfly in all of its glory. Exceptional control of the camera settings really made this fantastic. Well done Chandra. :)
