Hi all,

I gave the title pollination to this picture because it depicts what role insects play in pollination. You can see pollen on the proboscis!
FYI this is Heliconius doris
Hope you ppl will like it

You are a snipper for these long winged ones. They have no chance to escape from you sharp aim. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Goutham,
Great capture of this beautiful butterfly. It's very sharp and focus and the details are very good. I liked the composition, POV and the colors. Well done and TFS.
Best wishes,


You can see the pollens all over (legs for example). This is a brilliant picture. Of all the butterflies you have posted this is the first one to have a large stomach region. The colors on the wings is just amazing. You even got both antennas in sharp focus. Marvelous picture Goutham.
