Hello Paul,
the butterfly you show is
- Charaxes brutus
- family: Nymphalidae
The subspecies of South Africa is called natalensis.
Chraxes species are usually very shy and absolutely fast and strong fliers.
Congratulations that you obtained such a well-focused and sharp picture of this butterfly.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Paul,
Fine capture of a Charaxes species: I think Peter is right about the ID. Though this specimen is a little worn, you show fine detail in this capture with good use of flash.
TFS and enjoy your weekend.

A beautiful butterfly with lovely colors and fine details showing the pattern. This picture amazes me because you caught it in a setting where the colors blend perfectly with the subject. Very lovely.

Hi Paul.
I like your very impressive butterfly picture. Exposure parameters and flash work are amazing. Perfect illuminated, coloured and sharpened butterfly (and twig) looks at very interesting and detailed BG perfectly. Shot is composed perfectly. Great close-up. My compliments and TFS.
Alexei.
