Pupa of Common Crow
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Common Crow (Euploea core) is a glossy black butterfly with brown underside with white marks along the outer margins of the wing. The wingspan is about 8-9 cm and the body also has prominent white spots.|
Upperside dark brown, broadly paler along terminal margins; Fore and hind wing with subterminal and terminal series of white spots; on fore wing the former more or less oval, curved inwards opposite apex, the latter series often incomplete, not reaching apex, the spots smaller; often there is a small costal spot, and very rarely a spot in apex of cell and one or more discal spots; on the hind wing the inner series of spots are elongate, the outer conical. Underside similar, but ground-colour more uniform; cell, costal and discal spots on both fore and hind wing nearly always present.
The pupa of this species is shiny golden in color. The wing margins are marked with broad colourless bands. The abdomen has a row of black spots on each segment. The cremaster is black. The pupa later turns black.

Something I have never seen with my own eyes, Anil.
A very intriguing shot of Pupa of a butterfly in which I am trying to figure out what those subtle shades of colours actually represent.
Technically, I must classify this as a very graphic document.

Bem apanhada, parece tons metálicos. Bela composição e distância focal. Definição e luz perfeitas. Parabéns, adorei.
