[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the last picture of my Cameron Butterflies series.

This zebra-lookalike butterfly is my favourite because it is the friendliest. As I was strolling along the butterfly farm of Cameron Highlands, the little creature just flew towards me and stopped right beside me, fluttering its wings.

I have to apologize that recently I haven't been posting about their species. I will get back to it when I'm done processing other images.

This photo was taken without tripod using ISO400. One note about the ISO is that at cold temperature, it is ok to use a higher ISO setting. This is because the image sensors are cooled down hence producing less noise. However, the disadvantage of using your camera at cold temperatures is that your batteries tend to deplete faster. Be sure to keep your camera close to your body or put it inside the camera bag when not in use.

I like this picture and I hope you like it too.
