Posted by Devi (Chennai, India) on 12 August 2017 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

But nevertheless...a butterfly :)

Jypyä Pop from Turku, Finland

I think it's a good picture. But butterflies are hard to describe, as most keep wings together when they do not fly. The beautiful wings of this wings are just fine.

Shaun from Thorton, United States

A nice image of this butterfly Devi. Sad to say I haven't seen many in my garden this summer, thanks to the use of spraying insecticides, which has also caused problems with bees.

@Shaun: You are right..Insecticides and pesticides seem to be the cause for the diminishing number of thee beautiful insects.
