Chocolate Pansy Basking in the Sun

Spotted this Chocolate Pansy or Chocolate Soldier (Junonia iphita) butterfly basking in the sun. Nothing spectacular about the photograph itself, but what I liked was the fact that I was able to completely blur the background. Using maximum aperture does blur the background but never found it to my satisfaction. This picture I clicked with the Macro mode on and f/4.5 aperture. Though the photograph was not was a macro picture, using macro mode suitable blurred the background making the subject stand out.
