[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am trying to use 150-600mm lens for taking macros from a distance. I captured this little butterfly with it today morning. There is a slight blur in the upper part of its wings.

Talicada nyseus, the red Pierrot, is a small but striking butterfly found in the Indian subcontinent and South-East Asia belonging to the lycaenids, or blues family. The red Pierrots, often found perching on its larva host plant, Kalanchoe, are usually noticed due to their striking patterns and colors.

Hi Ram,obviously the right part is blurred because the diagonal prospect,but it's still a good capture considering the very bad light,the orange is bright. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ram,

The vegetation is framing well the insect. The point of view is showing the details of the Red Pierrot butterfly. The colors are striking. Did you use a tripod to support the long lens ? Have a nice dya.
