[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot from my Diwali vacations. There were thousands of Lemon Pansy.They were all young and restless. When I go to my native village, I do take a walk in our fields and along the river which is like refreshment for me.I do carry my camera with me. People are now familiar with my camera and they do not look at me with a weird look anymore. :) I got some pictures of DFs, some butterflies.
Lemon Pansy likes morning sunlights and they like to rest in the light. SO its the best time to shoot these BFs. They hardly close their wings. This guy was sitting on this leaf for a long time but at the stem end. I took one picture and moved ahead. Immediately he flew and sat at the tip of the leaf. I rushed back and took this picture. I personally liked the composition ( which might seem like self appraisal)
Hope you will also like this one.
Its one of the most posted butterfly on TN, I guess. For more information you can visit here
