Description: During lockdown we had a truly beautiful natural occurrence - a mass migration of 'blue tiger' butterflies (Tirumala limniace). This is one of those occasional natural wonders that takes place when the planets align - right wind, moisture, previous and prevailing weather etc. etc. The event lasted for the better part of a week and the air was all-but filled with these beautiful creatures. The timing was absolutely wonderful if not somewhat ironic. While us earthbound humans were being locked down by a virus these breathtaking winged wonders were filling the skies, flitting off to live their lives. Shot with Canon EOS 5d MkIV 100-400mm lens at ISO 1000, 400mm, f5.6, 1/100
