A two-tailed pasha (Charaxes jasius) on opuntia.

I wonder what attracts it to this one of the most difficult landing places in the plant world. What do you think?

Hiding or caught?

Nice picture indeed!]


A razor-sharp image perfectly composed Sayat, and with accurately reproduced colours. Obviously the Pasha did not find the landing difficult!

Hello Sayat,

You have made a fine close-up of this butterfly showing it well behind the opuntia fruit. As you have used well the light your photo has fine, naturaly looking colors. Image is sharp showing well the pattern of the wings as well as the plant.

Thank you for sharing,

Bonjour Sayat,
On retrouve donc ton magnifique papillon. Sur cette image j'aime beaucoup l'angle de vue peu conventionnel que tu as choisi, j'aime bien ton cadrage vertical. Les piquants ne semblent pas poser de problèmes à ce pasha, il est si mince :-)!
Une belle journée, ici il pleut

Hi Sayat,i think that the butterfly is landed there because the fruit is sweet.....very great pic,the colors and the sharpness are simply fanatastics,not easy to have a perfect focus like that from this point of view,my best compliments,have a nice day,Luciano

Hi Sayat,
Un cadrage vertical équilibré qui met aussi bien en valeur le fruit que le papillon

Hi Sayat,
Is a nice image, plenty of colours and shapes. I like the ornamented butterfly partially hidden behind the Opuntia fruit, a plant native from my continent. Good job
