This butterfly seems have a large hair clenched with a band. It is like a "hippie butterfly". :)

Very nice! Greetings, lm

Het is vaak al een kwestie van veel geluk om ze tegen te komen en dan moet je ze toch ook nog goed op foto zien te krijgen. Erg mooi gedaan Erik!! Groeten Luud

Weer wat laat Luud maar als nog bedankt voor je berichtje.

Daniello thank you so much for the kind words.

Thank you Nona, I was really happy to find this one. It's colour pattern is both amazing as incredible. The light conditions where hard, as it was after sunset and the had gotten pretty dark.

As it was resting it stayed on one place and was not (like most butterflies) moving around.I could set up my tripod took my macro lens and take several pictures.

Greetings, Erik
