The Pioneer This butterfly is another individual that lived in Ramoji Film City’s Butterfly Garden. I believe it’s a Pioneer (Belenois Aurota), but then again, I’m only guessing based on their habitat and color… And it’s a good thing I took this photograph when I did. Since then, they have banned tele lenses. ☹️ The last time I went, my tele lens was not allowed in the studio at all… Apparently, most tourist places in the city have begun disallowing any lens greater than 55 mm, which is just sad… This is part of my Ramoji Film City series. EXIF Info Exposure f/5.6 1/1250 sec ISO 800 Focal Length in 35mm 450 Date taken 2017:07:29 12:05:32 Camera NIKON D3200 Spread the love Tweet Post navigation GrasslandsPrimula Vulgaris 16 Comments beautiful, wonder why they banned telelenses Reply I wonder the same, Christine… It feels counter-productive… Reply Lucky you to have grabbed this when you could, Sudipto. One wonders about camera restrictions nowadays, especially with smart-phone use. I’m always happy when landmark structures (like cathedrals) now allow cameras but without flash. I can definitely handle that (since I never use flash). Reply Me too… Flash restriction’s understandable, and even justifiable in aquariums and zoos… Reply what a beautiful capture.. How sad that in many places like this. photography has been banned !!! Reply It certainly is sad, Devi… Reply Wow! What a stunning, eye-catching butterfly! Its stark black and white really creates a nice impact. Great capture! Reply Thanks, Steven… 🙂 Reply it’s a great image of the butterfly to warn me up Sudipto… we are in the middle of winter without butterflies….peter:) Reply Glad I could help, Peter… 🙂 Reply Une superbe prise JP Reply Merci, JP… 🙂 Reply i was going to say this is a tree nymph but i am not completely sure, Sudipto. nevertheless this is a splendid shot. i do not know the logic behind not allowing the tele lenses. i’d rather see the selfie sticks get banned! Reply I concur, Ayush… Selfie sticks have spread like a plague… And you might be right. I Googled for tree nymph, and they look very similar, although all of the photos in Wikipedia had thinner black lines than this one… 🙂 Reply Just superb Reply Thank you, Marie… 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
