This pair was matting and when I attempted for the first time it flew off and sat on a tree leaf. later after 10 minutes I found them on a small plant at 3ft hight! I took it in one hand!! Because i have to spread the other leaves to get clear view. So here it is. I used built in flash to fill the shadows. And for your info, it was taken in Butterfly park.
