Butterfly

Tried to grab my attention while I was shooting dragonflies - succeeded too. Thanks goes to mgjefferies for identifying this beauty as a Tailed Emperor (scientific name: Polyura sempronius)

 

[180mm, f10, 1/160, ISO200].

 

Better on black and in high resolution!

 

Commercial users please contact the photographer for high resolution originals or prints (quick and easy on-line payment and delivery available).
