after posting a bug, a dragonfly and a butterfly, respectively, i wanted to go for a bird this time. but couldn't ignore that 'please..'

yes nagraj.v (nagraj), this post is for you :)

i too had a plan for posting a clear image of this gorgeous. but i was not satisfied with this shot. hence wanted to avoid. apparently, it will seem to be lovely to you. it is. but it was ME in front of whom this butterfly was basking! and i know what i had seen!!!! i don't take any blame for not being able to do justice to its beauty here. nor do i give it to my cam. it was the just a bad luck out of luck : the background. that green leaf is not going here. some dry leaves could have been. i tried my best with exposures and angles.. not much time was given though...

i firmly believe in exposing any living creature with its proper dignity. am sorry, but next time... surely :)

this is a Common Banded Peacock butterfly (Papilio crino), from the family 'Papilionidae' and genus 'Papilio'. no idea male or female..

Hello Ruby,
I understand why you can't ignore this gorgeous butterfly, what a beauty!
And you photographed it in splendid colours and impressive sharpness and details.
Nice choice of POV and composition.

Excellent shot Ruby!
Yes you got less time to click the beauty but you captured it very well with fine details.
Good pose & fascinating metallic color. Well done & TFS.

Ciao Ruby, great macro of fantastic butterfly, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful bright colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

...and here she is....more beautiful than ever sublime and majestic like the Goddess of love ...Aphrodite! I am obviously a bit jealous of this well deserved dedication, but never the less this enlarged image here came as a request from me, so I am also touched ;) Good evening Ruby!
