[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A dwarf among other butterflies which can be observed in Sulawesi, such as large Papilionidae of the genera Troides and Papilio or Danainae of the genus Idea.

However, the smaller Lycaenidae show higher species-richness than the above mentioned groups and neverhteless have nice wing patterns and colours.

The picture shows:
- Anthene philo
- family: Lycaenidae

The species is endemic for the Sulawesi region.

Hello Peter,

Beautiful detailed picture of this small Butterfly. I like the way framed it as well as details on its body. Very good light and well managed BG too.
Thanks for sharing,

PS - Thanks for your beautiful city comment addressing "Namaste". I'm curious to know how you know this Hindi word!

The exceptional sharpness, minimalist composition, an aesthetic background playing with dark clear; and a butterfly in graceful dynamic attitude make this picture a vibrant and beautiful work.

Thanks, Peter.
