Hello Pauly,
Definitely a gorgeous butterfly and shown in super fine detail. I love the beautiful markings and colors in it's wings. The overall composition is very pleasant to view, a top quality photo!!

I did find a great site for butterflies of Africa. Hopefully you can just copy this link and paste it into your browser.

Here is a photo of what I think may be the same butterfly, but the name is not listed click here

Hi Paul,

You're capturing well this butterfly by a good composition, a good focus and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle that the butterfly with the tasteful pattern is stopping on the tip of yellow stalk by A horizontal posture. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination.

Kind regards,

Hallo Pauly
A gorgeous image and as always such a pleasure to look at your neat and tidy presentation. The detail and sharp focusing is first class. Very good colours, and the markings are seen with great clarity. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hi Paul, Beautiful shot with excellent clarity. Thank for sharing
