[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken long time ago (March 2006), I found this picture while checking the individual files before formatting my old backup Hard Disk.

Just want to share a mating Troides Helena Cerberus (also known as Common Birdwing) hanging in an open area. It was a tough job for the other butterfly which is holding their own weights. With sporadic wind blow on their wide opened wings, making their location a sweet spot and a perfect lure to predator like birds. Who really cares?

Hi Leo
I also use 100-400 zoom lens for macro shots. Yours give such a great results. Excellent timing, great focus and POV. BG and other colors amazing. Butterfly couple also amazing beautiful. Larger size might be great. Thanks for sharing, best wishes
