After an-hour of search for butterflies through the little garden near to my home, I caught up with this little compelling and colorful butterfly who was hopping and flapping around on the the tiny branches of a little plant. I was wondering if the butterfly would rest a while so that I could take the shot, and finally it did and sat patiently, I began to move forward slowly towards the butterfly, and avoided some small tiny branches which was like a distraction in the angle, I moved slightly towards the opposite side of the subject which i thought was perfectly a right direction to shoot, I then bent down and knelt on one foot aimed my camera and started focusing,... and as I was gaining focus, the butterfly was flapping its wings wide open, and wouldn't let me take the shot, I began to wait patiently and in the meantime fixed my tripod... After quiet some time it closed its wings and stood still, I began to admire its beauty, I felt like this was a great time and encouragement to capture such a beauty... the colors were so majestic and was blending with the leaves,.... And for my great delight interestingly a patch of light from the top right direction was illuminating and falling exactly on the butterfly. The sufficient background light was adding much contrast to the scene and more ever giving the eye to view all the butterfly's fascinating designed patterns on its body and wings in details...., Let me tell you it was a treat to my eyes.

I further began to move slowly forward to catch all of the glimpse through my lens and took the shot, until then I never knew Butterflies were that beautiful, They really are beautiful.... especially when you realize how close you are to this wonderful creature.
