A COMMON GRASS YELLOW LAYING EGG

Butterflies lay eggs on small plants mostly in monsoon in India.The image shows a COMMON GRASS YELLOW,a medium size butterfly laying an egg on a plant leaf in my backyard,where I carry out my butterfly breeding program.All the body parts and the egg are clearly seen bringing out the drama of the moment.The butterfly is nicely seen against the dark green of the plant.Shot with Canon EOS 1000D camera with Canon EF-S 55-250mm lens. f/11, 1/800sec,ISO 800.
