[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I saw this butterfly fluttering along a stream during the hottest part of the day, after drinking or eating something on the mud along the river it flew inside a crack formed by several rocks. I lifted some of the rocks and there it was completly still and not aware at all of my precence, it seems to be an old specimen given the wear of the wings.

Hello Simon, The wings seem to be damaged by a hit of a bird. Very nice shot and with a lot of details. Ganesh
