3. A MALE butterfly came to ask her to play. She was not distracted. She ignored him.
Females are paler yellow.
Place camera on top of fence rail, therefore not handheld -
Most of the time, you will notice that the Grass Yellows flutter from flower to flower, not staying for more than 2 seconds usually. This one sips nectar for several seconds, focused on having a good breakfast. A companion came to ask her to fly with him or her. NO DISTRACTIONS.

5 key pillars to LinkedIn success
5. Personal brand.
PROFILE. It summarises how great you are. Readers don't actually know what you do, what you offer or how it can help them.
Readers go away with an interest in buying from you or your product you sell, but not realising that you sell it.
2. Build a vluable network of prospects, customers and peers.
3. Turn your network into leads and sales opportunities through effective messaging - well-crafted conversation-starting messages, no spammy sales-pitch messages.
4. create sper-engaging content that provides value to your prospects, generates leads and build trust.
5. Personal brand to become a trusted and respected figure in your industry.
How to design a fully optimised profile, back it with content and building a personal brand -- generate regular inbound leads.
But LI can generate OUTBOUND sales opportunities. One way is to message people who view your profile.
Paid upgrades on LI which allow you to see everyone who has viewed your profile, not just the most recent few.Paid upgraded Premium or Sales Navigator account.
Update profile, check views on a regular basis, build it into your daily routine and make it a part of your outbound sales strategy.
My goal is to help YOU generate leads from LinkedIn.
1. How to create the ultimate LI profile to convert viewers into prospects, leads and customers.
Do a full team profile audit.
1. Do you have a professionally taken headshot?
2. professionally created LI banner that tells people what you do in an engaging way?
3. Does your headline tell people what it is that you do?
4. profile summary closer to the 2,000-characgter limit?
5. profile summary focused on your ideal customer and not on you?
6. your contact details included?
7. strong relevant media attached to it?
8. skills listed to include the most relevant ones in your top 3?
9. more than 5 recommendations in your LI profile?
Once you optimised your LI profile, look at WHO is viewing it...Free account, see most recent 4 per day unless you view breakfast lunch and dinner..
Upgraded, see EVERYONE which holds a lot of business and sales potential.
Qualify them. Simply message them, thanking them for viewing your proifle and asking them something relevant totheir role or the product/service that you offer and how they're current utilising that.
Keep checking those views EVERY SINGLE DAY. Make it one of your sales day activity.
COMMON LI PROFILE MISTAKES
1. Poor profile picture e.g. wedding, holding a pint of beer
2. No background / banner image
3. Weak or no summary (which increase your inbound and outbound sales opportunities).
4. The salesperson summary (aa if you are looking for a job). Ok for recruiter. Prospect know you are after one thing - sales to them.
5. Zero recommendations. One of strongest features of LI. Easy to gain.
6. Creating a customer-focused LI profile. NOT an online CV. Become customer focused, not sales focuses. How you can help them, not how great you are.

13 Oct 2021. Yio Chu Kang Crescent forest.
Oriental Common Mime (Papilio clytia clytia Linnaeus)
This butterfly was patiently posing for me. No breeze shaking the flower and butterfly. Good morning sunlight. Took 9 images at one continuous mode. This was the 7th image. Image is judged by how sharp the eyes are. In this image eyes are sharp.
ORIENTAL COMMON MIME
As at 20 Oct 2021, 19 images are available for sale at www.shutterstock.com
In my assessment, my image is the most useful for printing on mugs, T-shirts, project work
1. Sharp image
4. Action: Sipping nectar from a commonly seen wild flower, Bidens pilosa.
ORIENTAL COMMON MIME
As at 20 Oct 2021, 1 image (with left wing clipped) is available for sale at www.alamy.com
Canon DSLR EOS 90D, EFS 18-200mm lens, P Mode*, single point focus, continuous mode.
Handheld. I focused on the eye. Shot 9 images continuously. The 7th image was sharp.
The butterfly was sipping nectar for several seconds. No breeze. 10 AM.
It is very difficult to take sharp images of butterflies without a better lens. The use of a tripod is advised. Handheld movements, shutter clicking movements, breezes, butterfly movements result in poor quality images. Continuous shots more than 9 will be better to get more chances of capturing one sharp image.
