[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Here is another catch from Thoppur. This is Eggfly from the bottom. You can see the white circles in the back-lit wings. I had taken a picture of this butterfly from the top at Omkar Hills. After that, I had an opportunity to see this beauty only at Thoppur. I took a few pictures of this butterfly with wings open and closed and I liked this the most because of lighting and because of the proboscis positioning.

Hi Murali.
Brilliant reproduction of this beauty. Amazing colours, details and sharpness. I am also impressed with wonderful soft impressive natural lighting. BG is superb too. May be I would prefer more free space (BG) round the butterfly. Scenery is very attractive. My compliments and TFS. Well done.
I'll be back soon.
