|[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista|
|Ariadne merione, also known as the Common Castor, is an orange butterfly with brown lines whose larvae feed almost exclusively on Castor Ricinus communis.|
This species is found in south-eastern Asia. Their wingspan ranges between 30-35mm. Like others in the Nymphalidae family, their front two legs are small and unused, effectively making them four-legged. These smaller appendages are covered with long hairs, giving them the characteristic brush look.
It is found all over India, Simla to Sikhim in the Himalayas, and recorded from Rajputana and Bengal; Assam; Burma; Tenasserim; Malayan Subregion. The Tenasserim specimens are darker and often without the white subcostal spot in the fore wing, approximating thus to the Southern Indian and Ceylon race.

Try macro mode, Atanu. That choice should be available on your camera even if it is point-and-shoot type. The best point of view would have been from the rear of the butterfly in this situation.
Nevertheless, it is a good effort. I am sure you would charter upward growth in a short time.
Keep shooting and all the best.
