An absolutely beautiful capture of this Plain Tiger and a wonderful composition. The butterfly, the flower, and the background are all excellent with beautiful colors and fine details.

Elegant capture of this butterfly we see in plenty here in India, Janice.
Glad to realise you have this species in your butterfly park in Zew Zealand.
The image is very sharp and colourful. The lantana flowers add to the beauty of this composition.
TFS and regards.

a nice point of view to present this colourful chrysippus. I like the fine orange-brown nuances
of the wing pattern. I think, a smaller aperture - perhaps f/9 - would have worked well to
achieve more sharpness also on parts of the flower and the posterior parts of the hindwings.
Best wishes, Peter

Excellent shot in tall frame with this beautiful monarch on yellow lantana. The sharpness and details are well demonstrated with pleasing shallow depth. I like it. Well done and thanks for sharing. Best regards.
