I too have shot a Grayling only once in the Himalayan region, Hasan.
This butterfly has a tendency to be earth bound like in your picture.
Very sharp and crisp image.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Hasan,
Not a easy target....Excellent contrast and sharp details. It is a wonderful specie and difficult to shoot.....
