A small, thumb-nail sized butterfly with long flowing tails found in India...
Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary
yes Sarah, I agree...
WOW!! How BEAUTIFUL :)
thank you Bonnie, one of nature's great gifts...
Oh my! How beautiful!
thank you so much Leana...
thanks everyone... The trick to getting the upperside of the wings is to be there when the first sun hits. Butterflies need to warm up in the morning before they start flying, and they do so by basking with their wings open in the sun. That, and the photographer being as quiet and still as is possible while moving!!
So beautiful! Congrats
Great images! I find it's often pretty challenging to get a shot of the topside of the wings on butterflies that have colorful patterns. The butterflies tend to keep them hidden as soon as they thing anybody is around to see them.
How amazing. I wonder if the tail part has any purpose? Beautiful butterfly and pics
Wonderful Pam. Agree with Lauren, getting both sides is fantastic. Well done on your SOTD :)
Wow awesome beauty. Congrats Pam.
Oh my goodness Pam! This one is amazing and you got both sides! Congratulations on SOTD!
Too true Hema, and she really showed off her talents with the butterflies of NE India. Such an amazing array of colours, designs, shapes and sizes. A butterfly photographers dream come true, set in an awe-inspiring landscape.
thanks you so much Ashley for the SOTD... It is a truly amazing little butterfly. Just thumbnail size, and when it flies, the tails fly around with a feathery appearance, so out of the corner of one's eye, it looks like a fairy fluttering around !!
What a beauty! Congrats on the well deserved SoTD.
