Hidden Wings

I took this photo in the garden of our house in Hooghly, India in 2007. Butterflies are abundant in our garden but shooting them requires patience as they are nervous creatures and fly away before one can get close. Also, the fact that the garden is full of mosquitoes does not help.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
