This is quite a common butterfly where we live.

The light enhances the margin of brown wings very well.

Thank you, T-F. I take many pictures where the light source, usually the sun, is in front of the camera. I believe this is called "contre jour", a French phrase meaning "against day".
By the way, I'm not used with names of people from Taiwan. Should I acknowledge you as "T-F", as you would acknowledge me as "Adrian"?

I usually use backlighting to describe the situation. Thanks for your information, I consulted Google.
Contre jour is used for painting before being used for photography. Because the history of painting is longer than that of photography. I think contre jour is older than backlight.bulb
Thank you Adrian, you are good at languages (English, French, Latin, etc).
You can call me Tsao (family name) or Teng-Fu (TF, given name). You are so kind.smile

Thank you, Bjorn. We have much more colourful butteflies around at this time of year, but I've not managed to photograph them successfully.

Apparently (but I'm in no way an expert on this) the best time is early in the morning. Then they still have to dry their wings and are sitting still for longer than a few seconds.
