Apefly, Spalgis epius, Lycaenidae family.

Yesterday in Lalbagh I found this common butterfly perched at the edge of the leaf, resting so long giving me a chance to capture using tripod. Soft light coming from behind the butterfly and I liked the greens very much.

Hi Nagaraj.
Precise use of open aperture. Details f the cute butterfly are great and BG is smoothed nicely. I also welcome horizontal cropping of the shot. It is very impressive and suitable for the main subject. TFS and best wishes.

Missed this one during my absence. A most refined picture, totally in your style. The tripod helped here to have a perfect focus on the fine Lycaenid and to create a most subtle background. Splendid picture!
Kind regards
