17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Nawab in his empire, Jayanti, Buxa Tiger Reserve

The image shows a Great Nawab butterfly is collecting nutrients from the feces of the Crab-eating Mongoose. I observed it for a couple of minutes and it seemed to be at peace with its surroundings which gave me ample time to compose the shot as I wanted.
