[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This butterfly was sitting motionless on the window ledge of medical room in my school today. The room attendant called me over to take its picture since I am frequently seen around the campus with my camera. The shot had to be taken through window pane so as not to disturb it. It is the female of the species.

Hypolimnas bolina, the great eggfly, common eggfly or in New Zealand the blue moon butterfly is a species of nymphalid butterfly.


H. bolina is found in Madagascar in the west, through to South and Southeast Asia, the South Pacific islands (French Polynesia, Tonga, Tuvalu, Samoa and Vanuatu), and occurs in parts of Australia, Japan, and New Zealand.

Hello Ram,
What a gorgeous butterfly you have presented to us today. I am at work getting ready to clock in for the day and decided to see what new images had been posted.
Lovely details and stunning wing markings. I actually thought it was sitting on well packed sand on some beach until I read your notes. A real beauty!!

Lovely shot. The colors of the butterfly show off well against the background and you have excellent DOF showing little details on the legs for example.
