The Common Lime butterfly
Lime Butterfly is rather common in Singapore and can be found in both forested and urban areas. The fast flying adults are frequently seen in flights in and around residential areas, often visiting flowers growing in gardens and potted plants in common areas outside houses/flats. The females can also be seen making ovipoisiting visits to the many Citrus plants, cultivated or wild, in the residential neighbourhood. The hyper-active adults are easier to approach for photographic captures during the cooler hours in the morning and late afternoon, when they retire to rest among the foliage.

Nice colourful image of a difficult to capture subject, would of liked the full size image to be bigger to see more detail, still a good well composed image, well done.

A great shot of this lovely butterfly, you have captured some lovely details on its wings &'you can even see his tongue curled up. We have been in a butterfly world & found it hard to take photos of the butterflies as they wouldn't settle to get a photo of them. well taken & edited.

As said they are not the easiest things to photograph, by the time you get focused they have flown off.
Not sure if you could have managed a larger file size here Frank, but a pity it is not just a bit sharper.

An excellent composition, if a tad bright for me Frank.
Lots of detail of a fine specimen, great shot, well done.

Plenty of fine detail in this and you've captured the colours well.. Reading your notes, I have heard that some people will chill captive butterflies in the fridge if they want to do a photography shoot; seems a bit unkind to me.
