Hello Anne,

Splendid capture of this mature Tailed Jay. Fine light management producing rich hues in the often challenging noon hour time period. The pov is ideal and the focus impressive. Well taken.

Hi Anne, Stunningly beautiful. Perfect DOF and light. the BG is also impressive. Thanbks..... Nitin

We have Graphium dosen in India, Anne. It is only slightly different from agamemnon.
I know that these butterflies are difficult to get with their wings fully open. You have pulled off a scoop here.
Superb details and colours on the wings.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Anne, what a lovely butterfly with its wings spread out, offering perfect symmetry.
The details are sharp, and the red flowers make a nice contrast to the green foliage and the colors of the butterfly. I really like the gradient greens in the spots on the butterfly wings.
Tres joli!
Merci pour le partage.

Hallo Anne
A wonderful image, beautifully captured with great clarity and perfect focus. Awesome detail and stunning colours in the overall picture. Thanks for sharing a great macro. Best regards.

Bonjour Anne,
superbe cette image de ce beau papillon.
bonne semaine

Ciao Anna. Ottima qualità per questa esotica bellezza! Magnifici i colori perfetta la luce. Complimenti.


Hi Anne,
I guess this was taken when i was there with you ! This picture has come out very well and the separation of the butterfly from the BG has enhanced the image.
