What a beautiful Pansy from a good POV in perfect exposure and focus my friend, its diagonal aspect is fine for tired eyes and that chocolate-on-chocolate colour thema proves that sometimes objects on similarly colored BG's also make wonderful compositions!
TFS and cheers,

Great composition and fantastic, warm colours! I like the way you presented this cute butterfly - the place where it is looking at - has a lot of free space :)
Very good sharpness and DOF too.
All the best from Poland!

The diagonal composition, DOF and colours are really perfect in this photo. You were going for the best POV. The colours are splendid and the sharpness very good.

This shot of the Chocolate Pansy is spectacular! The angle and wing positions are just magnificent. The most beautiful browns and the finest details. The green leaf adds just the amount of color it needs and the natural background is lovely. A beautiful picture and composition.

Bonjour Silpa! I am happy to visit your gallery once more and discover this beautiful chocolate (miam miam, I love chocolate) butterfly. The light is the attractive feature in your picture, it is so bright yet beautifully saturated, the wings almost look translucent. Plus, the dof is perfect with this blurred background and a very sharp butterfly. Very pretty, Silpa,

This is such a magnificent and colourful insect. I just love the assortment of colours and patterns on the wings and especially the white lining along the edges are very eye-catching. The hairy body is very fascinating, as well as the shape and size of the wings. Sharpness, focus, light and composition is prominent. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed looking at this one.
ps. Look out in the next day or so for my 1st Kruger vacation posting.

Superb in all respect close-up of a wonderful butterfly. A bit back POV, wingspread of the butterfly, diagonal composition of the picture are great as well as the sharpness and details of the insect and colourfulness of the well blurred BG. My compliments and best regards.

Thanks a lot for your kind wishes. I would like to send you too my best thoughts for a happy and healthy 2009. I have chosen this picture, because I discovered the Pansy-butterflies on TN and I think they are of very subtle beauty and have very fine coloration and patterns. Well photographed this specimen, even if not in an easy pose.

Hello Silpa !
This is such a wonderful picture ! I really love the warm colors on the butterfly, and this soft, pinkish color of the blurred BG. Very pleasant to the eye. The pose of the butterfly with the wings half open and your POV from behind, as well as the composition, make this picture truly gorgeous. I really like it. Very well done !
