[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A common butterfly and easy to shoot as well for it sits languorously and sits for long. There would be much written about it on TN so I would not get into that. I like the contrast here between the white flower and the dark wings of the butterfly

Hi Mukesh,

A nice picture, with a very classical composition. Me please the excellent contrast between the fund, the flower and the dark-colored insect. Very good details and excellent brightness. Well done!



Namastay Mukesh ji,

A very beautiful macro capture of the adorable butterfly. As you said, i repeat here, the contrast is really superb between the butterfly's dark colors and the light colored blurry BG. I like the textures on the body of the butterfly, they are simply fantastic and very well shown.

Thanks for posting!

best regards,
Paras Bhalla

Hello Mukesh,

Thanks for sharing with us a very nice poster-perfect image of the common crow butterfly. You are indeed right - the contrast looks beautiful. I always have troubles capturing black and white tones together because in my case one or the other gets under/overexposed but you managed it fairly well. Though I though increasing contrast might make it look better. I am posting a workshop with these changes, hope you do not mind.



Hi Mukesh,

I am sure when you are taking efforts to take & present good pictures on TN, but you should get the identity of these, before you post it or ask for identity Then your efforts are complete.You can always buy book on butterflies for reference or search internet.

This is Common Crow (Euploea core)
