Flight of colours
Flight of a Veined Jay (Graphium chironides) butterfly with a dramatic background among the colurful butterflies was my main goal. I choose Veined Jay because they look completely different and absolutely gorgeous while flying and they can be found in good number in the Buxa tiger reserve area during March-April. I tried to capture the flight with a manual vintage lens and wide open to create the effect. I also need to shoot against the light so that the light reflected in the flowing stream may help me creating the bokeh. This year I tried seven days inside the jungle and beside the river bed where these butterflies use to do mud-puddling. I used two speedlight. One from the opposite side behind some bush at the other end of the small stream and one attached with the camera (at 1/16 flash exposure).
Speed shooting: 10/-25536
