Had shot this in Kuldiha WLS. Was going through my files and thought I would post this.

Canon EOS 1000D, Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM with Manfrotto Monopod
SS 1/125
F 7.1
ISO 400

This is Full Frame. Could have taken a tighter crop but felt like keeping it as shot.
Comments and critiques welcome.

Hi Bibhav,

Nice shot . Going after butterflies with a 300 prime is quite unusual !

What you have is a Common Sailor .

The perch is nice. The green colour of the leaves looks a bit saturated. Wish the out of focus areas on the left was not present. Thanks for sharing.
