[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken en route Devashola, from Mulli. 1/60 exposure time and F-Stop of f/3.5. Focal length used is 72mm, the max with S3IS, Handheld, with no fill flash.

This butterfly is no photo shy, and it poses enough time to take many clicks. But if you try to go near, she'll just fly to next flower.

Butterfly is called Dark Blue Tiger, and it's scientific name is Tirumala septentrionis.

Photo is edited to crop out the unwanted area, and to add the black border, using GIMP 2.6.8.

More details about the butterfly can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tirumala_septentrionis

Thanks for the critiques.

Hi Amal,
Very good picture, excellent handling of light and a sober but adequate saturation of colors. Thank you very much for comment on the options used with S3 to take the photo. I also photographed with a Canon (compact, in my case) and these data like yours, I used to learn.

beautiful closeup, TFS Ori
