A chrysalis (pupa) of a Common Crow butterfly (Euploea core). Approx. 2cm long. Found this on an Oleander plant (Nerium oleander?).
It was tough to get a clear shot through the leaves... there are some OOF distractions, but this was the best I could manage.
Canon 500D, Canon 100mm Macro USM
White balance- Shade preset (7000K)
Full-frame (Was thinking of cropping from the left and bottom, but wasn't sure)
No PP done
Thanks, C&C awaited
