    Default The Common Castor Butterfly

    This image is of the Common Castor butterfly (Ariadne merione). Beautiful pattern on their wings !

    This bright orange butterfly gets its name because the larve of this butterfly feed almost exclusively on the Castor Oil plant. The Angled Castor is very similar in appearance but the wavy lines are less dense.

    How I wish I had got a front angle shot of this beauty. The 5.3 fps of my 60 D certainly helped since she obliged me with only a 2 second audience.

    Canon 60 D, Canon 300 mm f/4 L IS, AV, f/8, 1/500, Ev.Metering, EC -0.33, ISO 800, handheld, full frame. C & C welcome please.

    Beautiful butterfly. It certainly looks like mustard oil colour. I guess it was at a height. From this angle, it becomes difficult to get the complete wings covered under the depth of field. Without the flower on the left it would have been even better. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    Lovely colour and patterns. the full wing spread looks nice. Agree a frontal view would have enhanced the composition further. Thanks for sharing.
