[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is taken in the outer wall of the elementary school which adjoins Shuri Castle in Okinawa in summer four years ago. When I walked along the way which goes to Shuri Castle, this big butterfly was seen between the trees of an outer wall. It is a size which has not been seen until now. A wing has a radiate black line and spot in a white ground. It fluttered slowly and was gliding. The length which extended the wing is 13cm, and it's the greatest as a butterfly which lives in Japan. It is widely distributed over Southeast Asia and is distributed over southwest islands centering on Okinawa in Japan. It breeds regardless of a season. It is long during the imago, and after growing wings, it continues living from several months to half a year. This butterfly is called Tree Nymph Butterfly or Rice Paperbutterfly by the English name, although a scientific name is Idea leuconoe.

Hello Mikio,
Very good picture in habitat.
Well done.

Hi Mikio,
Probably you cropped the original scene heavily, because the background blur is quite strong. Seems like the focus not on the butterfly at all, sharpness could be improved a lot. And the b-fly's too closed to the edge of the frame, so the composition isn't powerful enough either. Maybe next time.
Best regards, László
