good first post, it would be nice to have a longer note and also maybe what species this butterfly is, did you capture this in the park or in captivity?

good image though

Nice and sharp capture of this butterfly (do you know which type of butterfly it is?). The flower is a Lantana, which seems to be a very popular plant with butterflies world wide. Nicely oof background. More comprehensive notes would be nice.

Very good picture with very good colours and very good bokeh, excellent quality.
