Goutham, Great details. The wing colors have come out nicely. We did not have a choice with lighting and background. Next time we go to Edamalayur, we go straight to this place, whether we have breakfast or not.

Hello Goutham,
a beautiful picture of this beautiful creature. Here, one gets a slight impression of the beauty of both, the wing under- and upperside. The delicate legs and the proboscis are well shown. Well balanced light and nice colours, Peter

Hi Goutham,
This is an outstanding capture of the Paris Peacock.
Your POV gives us an excellent and clear view of this singular butterfly, with that amazing metallic greens sparkled over the black of its wings and body.
Proper exposure settings to get this sharp image.
My compliments and thanks for share it.

Hi Goutham.
Once more brilliant reproduction of the charming butterfly. I am amazed with tiniest details of the insect which we can see perfectly. Despite the light BG dark butterfly is exposure extremely well and I feel its texture excellently. The sunlight, the shadow are very impressive and composition. lowest POV and framing are great too. My compliments and TFS.
