Poor butterfly. It’s really pretty with the blue in its wings. It seems like it doesn’t have blue on the right side. Is it because it was hurt? Nice capture and I can’t tell where you repaired it! I only see at the bottom right a little bit of the wing gone too. Poor thing,all kinds of chinks taken out of his wings! But still beautiful!
It’s a Clipper (Parthenos sylvia). They’re quite common in S-E Asia. You caught it in very good light and it’s standing out well from the BG. Certainly in better condition than you see in some Butterfly Gardens. Good shot, Dean.
Very nice, Dean. It is a beautiful butterfly and you did a wonderful job capturing the details in it, and even the repair job on the wing. My old eyes can’t see where you had to repair it. I like how the buds to the right of the butterfly seems to fit with the shape of the wing.
