Clipper – Parthenos sylvia
The Clipper (Parthenos sylvia) is a species of nymphalid butterfly found in South and South-East Asia found mostly in forested areas. The Clipper is a fast flying butterfly and has a habit of flying with its wings flapping stiffly between the horizontal position and a few degrees below the horizontal. It may glide between spurts of flapping.

My greatest passion in photography is to capture the wonderful Butterfly. I hope you will enjoy my photos of Butterflies as much I do to watch them and to catch their beauty with my photographs. My camera is a Canon EOS 350D with a Canon Close-Up lens 250D. Thank you so much for your visit, the kind comments, the great support and the Love for Butterflies!
