I actually don't quite like this shot...But I'd like to know the ID, since this is the first time I've seen this butterfly on my premises.

I shot this using RAW and converted it...

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S.:- Thanks so much HP, for identifying this butterfly!

Hello Goldy,
very beautiful indeed. The pattern is so exciting to look at and the background is so graphical.
sharpness is wonderful and the symmetrical composition makes it so exciting.
Well composed shot.

Bonjour Goldy,
Voilà une image étonnante et très belle. Elle vit par ses textures et motifs différents, ainsi que par la coloration si spéciale de ce papillon. C'est une oeuvre d'art. Magnifique, tout simplement!
Meilleures salutations

Ouh! You do not like this shot? This is awesome Bro!
Good use of focus and very shallow DOF to have the overall body, including wings of the this beauty sharp. I also like the details and the texture created by the background.
A cheery, colorful posting.
TFS this l'il bro Goldy!
Have a nice day!

Hi Goldy,
a nice butterfly sitting on a strange background. But that is no problem. The only thing that bothered me in this picture was the apparent thickness of the antennae, an illusion created by the stark shadows. But you got your answer, that is essential and that is in the spirit of TN!

Best regards

Hello Goldy,
After looking at this image and reviewing the comments I see I may be in a minority. Although there is absolutely nothing wrong with your image as everything is well done, I find the background just overpowering and distracting from your beautiful subject. Your work is excellent, the situation is the problem in my eye.

A strange, yet somehow eye-catching shot Goldy.
The graphic Bg and the POV with its misleading shadows are not much of a hinder to make this a fine portrait of this species of Nymphalid butterfly. It could almost be used as a basis for a pattern for the textile industry!
Thanks anf kind regards,
