Chilasa clytia butterfly

Chilasa clytia, a common tropical butterfly found in Borneo. If not for the gloomy weather, the photo shoot would be perfect. The Chilasa clytia was just perching still on a flower and the air was still. A steady shot but lighting was a let down.

I think the photo above is about 5x lens zoom.

Your photos are amazing. I feel very humble when I compare them to mine. I really need to get my head around different lenses and put o0ne on my Xmas wish list.

Hi there, just popped by to say Hi! I've included your site on my links section. Nice to see lots of nature from Borneo!
By the way, this is not Chilasa clytia. This is a Great Eggfly (Hypolimnas bolina).

What great shots! These should be for posters they’re so good! I love the colors and out-of-focus look you’ve done. Nicely done!
