    Smile Tiger Again _ Blue Tiger

    Dear Friends,

    A fresh morning with fresh shot of Blue Tiger. These little creatures endorse the belief that life should be large and not necessarily long. In their little life span, fluttering around with colorful wings they bring joy & smile to everyone's face.

    Captured in Yeoor Hills.

    EXIF : 550D, 18-135mm lens at 135FL, Av: f/5.6, Tv : 1/160, ISO 100, 45% Crop (55% retained)

    Regards/ Anil Kumar Verma

    Nicely captured. Good light. A slightly higher ISO and shutter speed with a narrower aperture would have been good. You could tried to move the camera a bit more to the left to avoid the bright leaf on the right. Seems there is a caterpillar next to the butterfly . Thanks for sharing.
    Regards,

    Thanks Mrudul, for the feedback. Agree that increased ISO & Av coupled with higher Tv would have been even better. Could not implement the revised settings since these creatures are so agile & don't give much time to think & apply. But that's the challenge for any photographer. Would like to hear on strategies to handle such situations , when time is short & settings & composition need to be reworked.

    Nice. The presence of the caterpillar makes this image special. Is it a cat' of the same species?
    One way to get better butterfly images is to shoot early in the morning before it gets sunny, since butterflies are more skittish after soaking up a bit of sun. Also, if you chance upon animal droppings or a moist patch of soil, you could wait there for a while, your patience would surely pay off. Several people use baiting and other methods of deliberately attracting butterflies and making them stay for prolonged periods, but I wouldn't advise that since these short-lived creatures have an important role to play in the wild .
