This image won me the award of “Highly Commendable” in the “10 years and under” category of Wildlife Photographer of the year 2021.
This is a Cupid or Cycad Blue butterfly. I captured this image in my school garden. If you are wondering why I was in my school during online classes, I had won an award under the Young photographer category of Wildlife Photographer of the year 2020 awards. My award-winning image is here. So, my school principal told us that whenever we wanted to come to the gardens to take photographs, we were always welcome. So, my father and I went to my school on a beautiful Saturday morning. We took a lot of images in the garden. We were about to leave when I spotted this beautiful butterfly. I had to bend a little a lot to position the butterfly on the left and to get the colorful background.
For this image, I used a Nikon D5000 + Nikkor 85 mm f3.5 lens.
