Nice, almost leaf-shaped exotic butterfly species. You photographed it very well showing natural pose and colours, and original shape (good DOF and details). This is really interesting contribution to biodiversity of Lepidoptera here on TN.

Très belle photographie, dont la netteté est bien réussie.
ce spécimen m'est inconnu, mais ces teintes ont des nuances bien rendues

Very intersting shot of this Indian Leaf Butterfly,Perfect focusing,DOF and lighting,
It is such a shame that the butterfly house is closing down. It is a lovely place. I love these butterflies that look like leaves. Perfect sharpness, nice colours and great details

It most certainly does look like a dried leaf. Very nice picture. Simple in colour yet is important in its part of the kingdom of butterflies eh? Very sharp and naturally colored. I have heard of some butterfly location closing. This is not he one I hope.

Bonjour Nicholas,belle composition mais ce que j'apprécie le plus,c'est l'effet contraste entre le papillon et le bg.Tout beau travail,c'est bien joué.

Great exposure, detail, color, and POV Nicholas. I like the green contrasting BG and the patterns/colors of the leaf it's perched on.

It doesn't surprise me that it is called a leaf butterfly, it just looks like a leaf!
Very sharp capture with excellent details of the wings and the leaf!

A true specialist of the camouflage, this butterfly looks terrific in your photo here!
The sharp and colors really makes it look like a leaf and you did great to integrate part of the surrounding to enhance that resembalnce.
Very nice sharp details especially around the head, very good esposure and charming diagonal composition, too.
Bravo and TFS

Is this truly an Indian. Well I haven't one till now. It is my bad luck. Excellent details and very nice composed shot. Thanks a lot for sharing.

I think this is one of the most fascinating butterflies as they're totally camouflaged underneath and so bright and beautiful on the upper side. This is an excellent capture of the underside showing sharp details and I like the rolled-up proboscis! Nice contrasting background and a fine composition too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
