I went back to my hometown. At the cosmos bushes I discovered a few butterfles were resting and enjoying their meals. I saw this one with the sky as its background. It was nice of her to let me catch the pose .
Again, I need somebody who can tell me its species. How I appreciate if someone could. Thanks a lot to
Mr. Jusni Nasirun who help me out ith the butterfly's ID. Really appreciate that.

Hi Foozi. This is a fine capture of the butterfly. The blue sky as a backdrop is excellent. Good POV. Unsure of species, almost similar to the monach butterfly? TFS. Murray.

Assalamualaikum Foozi. I think this is Dark Glassy Tiger because of the lack in bluish color of Blue Glassy Tiger. This is your best shot by far of the butterfly. I like the markings on the wings and the details of the veins and captured perfectly on that flower against the spotless blue sky. Thanks for sharing and very well done indeed. Keep shooting and sharing. Wasallam. Jusni

Hello Foozi-

This image is so beautiful and pure. My first reaction was that it could be a painting. The simplicity makes it special- spotless blue background and a perfect side view of the butterfly and flower. Because it is uniform, the background becomes a key visual element in a trilogy, and nothing but those three elements is visible. This is an excellent capture of the butterfly, but it is much more than that- it is an excellent work of art.

Best regards,
