The Common Baron Butterfly

in PHOTOGRAPHY [DAC]last year

I found this brown butterfly on the wild plant near the pond. It's calm there under the shady leaf. Seeing that, I tried to take a few shots from the close range. I wish I could see it make a move and stand on the leaf so I could see the whole appearance of this brown butterfly but it's just a butterfly that acts upon its will. I leave it and focus on taking its picture. I did not mind if it stayed in this way as long as I could see its face and part of its wing, it's fine to me. It is Euthalia aconthea, the common baron, a native butterfly of Southeast Asia.

I think I have seen this kind of butterfly around. capturing such is very hard and it will take lots of patience to do so
