"The Striped Blue Crow (Euploea mulciber)"

Searching from my Archives, then i found this beauty, taken last year. And there are a lot them flying around in our home town in Palawan starting from June to August months. The wings are colored Dark brown under a shade or low light area, but under the sun and clear daylight their wings shines metallic blue, and it was very attractive like this beauty.

Trimmed down the exposure, added little vibrance and saturation, then resharpen due to file compression.

hope all of you will like this Photo.

Special thanks to Mr. Luciano Gollini "lousat" for helping me identify the name and what family of butterfly this beauty belongs to! :-)

Hello Arman,
I visited the Philippines years ago, but never saw this little beauty. I love it's pretty iridescent blue forewings in contrast to the chocolate brown hindwings. The whitish splotches remind me of tiny snowflakes. Nicely focused and displaying vivid yet natural colors. TFS.

Ciao Arman, great macro of fantastic butterfly, splendid light, wonderful colors and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
