[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Sharing with you a picture taken last month. We shot this Common Grass Yellow at Omkar Hills. I had been planning to take a picture of this Common Grass Yellow for a long time. However common this butterfly is, it is uncommon to see this busy butterfly sitting in a place for more than a few seconds.

We were lucky to spot this butterfly. It was practically inactive and posed for us for a long time. It is probably fresh out of the Pupa and is drying its wings. The Sun light however was not great casting soft light. The background could have been of lighter green to make this even better.

Hello Murali,
Beautiful shot of this lovely yellow butterfly.
Excellent composition with nothing but the butterfly and the diagonal line of the reed.
Great depth of field and lighting and due to that wonderful details.
The butterfly and reed do stand out perfectly against the darker background.
Thanks for sharing and the good note.
Best regards and have a nice Sunday evening,
