[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This triped tiger (Danaus genutia) had obviously had a tough life, one of his antenae is missing.
This butterfly is called Striped Tiger as it has striped markings on both sides of wings. The black stripes on its orange wings help to identify this species from the Plain Tiger (Danaus chrysippus), its close relative. Its wingspan is 75-95 m.m. Its head is black with tiny white markings. It has black and white wing-tips and the edges of wings are spotted with black and white. It has a pair of black feelers in front of its head. Its body is divided into three main divisions - head, thorax and abdomen. The Striped Tiger is migratory in nature. It migrates locally in India. It is often seen with other butterflies in large numbers during migratory flights. It likes busking in the sun spreading its wings during the winter. It flies from flower to flower in search of food.

Very nice capture Anoop. A little soft in focus but still with lots of details in the wings. DOF is very good and the background well blurred.

Hi Anoop
Neat DOF and composition, yet the pics would have been far better with a little more crisp focus. A tripod would be of great help to achieve this. Interesting note

Belle et intéressante composition macro-photographique pour ce superbe papillon. Jolies couleurs et bon point de vue.
Beautiful & interesting !

Nice shot, it could be a little sharper. Nice colours.
Well done.

Anoop, a very nice shot. Great lighting and colors. The pov is excellent too, and so is the composition.

I tried a little workshop.
