[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I'm proud to present you this Blue Tiger (Tirumala limniace).
It is a butterfly in the Danaid group of the Brush-footed butterflies family.

I captured this one in free nature - it was almost like a Jungle. We visited the Hindu-Temple-Ruins of Mỹ Sơn. They are located in the administrative district of Duy Xuyên in Quảng Nam province in Central Vietnam, 69 km southwest of Da Nang.

I was so happy to see this elegant butterfly for the first time in my live - flying from flower to flower.

Realy an impressive moment for me - and the UNESCO world heritage-temples were not as much important for me after that moment ;-)

Enjoy your day ...

hello Wishnu
Excellent macro presentation, vivid colors and excellent details

hello Sabine!
Very beautiful composition, the management of colors is exceptional also and the clarity!
keep photographing! TFS

Hi Wishnu,

This butterfly has been captured from a classical and interesting angle. It is always difficult to take pictures of butterflies that are generally under the shadow trees and flying in the jungle. Here in Venezuela there are many species that have this behavior. I think you used the flash so excellent, very good result, it is appropriate in these cases.



Lovely.The closeup catch is good.Details,sharpness are very good.Is it not possible to get without flash?

Hello Wishnu! Superb shot. Perfect sharpness. Ideal background. Good contrast. Very good macro. Well done!

Ciao Sabina, fantastic butterfly on a lovely flower, beautiful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Liebe Sabine,
Möchte auch einmal eine solche Schönheit frei herumfliegen sehen und verstehe ganz und gar Deinen Enthusiasmus. Du hattest nicht die einfachsten Lichtverhältnisse, hast aber daraus das Beste gemacht. Du scheinst die asiatischen Länder speziell zu schätzen. War leider noch nie dort.
Hezlich grüsst

hello Sabine
this is a great sharpness picture with good light and beautiful colours
greeting lou

Hallo Sabine
diser Schmetterling is sehr schön, das ist immer ein wunderbares Gefühl wenn ma zum ersten mal eine neue Spezie sieht, hauptsächlich in einem fernen Land,
sie haben recht darauf Stoltz zu sein, das Bild is t echt gelungen, Farben, Schärfe und Komposition, alles stimmt genau
grüsse und schönen WE

Happy to know you travelled to this part of Asia recently, Sabine, and were thrilled at your brush with the wild life in Vietnam.
The way you have shot this butterfly speaks volumes about your excitement at seeing and capturing this species for the first time. And it has turned out to be a terrific shot with utmost clarity and lovely natural colours.
Thanks for sharing the picture and looking forward to seeing some more images from your trip.

Hola Wishnu,
Un excelente trabajo técnico, donde destacaría yo lo bien que centraste el foco en la cabeza de la mariposa y en la planta; esto anterior, junto con la luz adecuada, separa muy bien el fondo del motivo principal, lo que da un gran realismo y sensación de espacio bien captado.
Saludos y buen fin de semana: J. Ignasi.

Hi my dear Blue-eyed friend,

Utterly stunning macro of this Blue tiger b-fly from your Vietnam trip.

Hi Sabine.
Thanks a lot for warm congratulations as well as for next amazing series of top quality close-ups. Details of the shot is clear and nice. Stem, flowers of plant and very-very beautiful butterfly are reproduced with ultimate exactness. I also like superb use of sunlight, flash and shadows. POV and composition are also outstanding. Bravo. Well done.
