[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Butterflies are attarcted by the flowers which provide nectar to them. many other insects like bees and flies also sip nectar of the flower and help in the process of pollination.

Most insects are beneficial, playing many ecological roles. Less than 1% are pests. They are the principal food of many birds and reptiles, and the survival of insect-pollinated plants depends on them.

Pollination is largely done by bees, Flies and butterflies. Plant-feeding insects also help maintain plant diversity, and without them, the most competitive plant species tend to dominate.

Insects play a major role in plant succession, with bark beetles being particularly noticeable in forest succession.

This image has been taken with camera on tripod, fill flash was used, raw to jpeg , resizing and framing done.

Hi Pankaj.
I am waiting your note and while I am getting pleasure seeing your nice picture. POV is simply amazing as well as the bright wonderful colours of the flower and butterfly. DOF, sharpness and flash light are perfect too. I like the composition of the shot a lot. Bravo and TFS.

Hi Pankaj,
crystal clear and a top notch composition, i love the light falling through the wings. The flash has worked excellently and has given you a great dark background too, very well done.

I wonder if one can recreate pollen in some way as an attractant. It would not be natural but you bring up a question. I have noticed hummingbirds can be attracted to plastic flowers through a glass window. So what sense is it that brings them. Is it the color perhaps? I think that may be it...and they like butterflies are quite flighty as if looking until it hits the mark then instinctively known it is right. A fine picture and well noted.

spendide composition, belles couleurs, parfaite netteté, le papillon est super beau, bravo et merci a toi
