You did an excelent photo of the butterfly. Dark wings texture is not easy to render correctly. You did it well showing nicely the texture as the DOF is well adapted and all details can be clearly seen. Light has been well used rendering many gray color tones from wings pattern.
Thank you for sharing,

What a beauty you managed to catch. Amazing wingspread of the insect and POV also as well as the farming and composition of the image. I think the colour reproduction of the butterfly image cannot be better. Sharpness and details also are great. Smooth BG is wonderful and so suitable for your model. Bravo. Well done and my kind regards.

Thank you for the instructive and very detailed notes, from my point of view they just lack of the personal touch. The picture shows a beautiful butterfly I have never seen before. It seems to be widespread in your country and pleases for its colours. You have put the butterfly very well on stage and present it in a technically perfect manner.

Very good picture of this Swallowtail. Good focus and sharpness. DOF is perhaps a little bit too short. Beautiful colours and excellent contrast against the vivid green background.

Superb view. Lovely shot covering the entire wings. Fantastic sharpness and I feel slightly there is a OOF bottom side of the shot but ignorable. Well done and TFS Ganesh

Common Rose is a very nice name for butterfy! Even if it there is no similarity with this flower ;)
Very nice capture showing upper parts of wings and its characteristic. I like also colouration of photo - the choice to show us black insect agains yellow-green BG was very good, thanks to that contrast is very good.
I like also note, very long, with many details and intersting facts from butterfly's biology and ecology. You found even information about parasites!
TFS and have a nice Sunday!

You have captured a good one here. Very good sharpness and superb details under very good lighting. It stands out so beautiful against the soft BG.

So this is the right time of year to see Swallowtails in Goa! I've only seen this beauty in butterfly farms. Excellent capture showing it with wide open wings. Great sharpness and beautiful colours too. It stands out very nicely from the soft background too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

A fine open-wing capture of a Common Rose Swallowtail, well focused in the limited lighting, and well composed against the OOF natural BG.

I saw this last night and marked it with my Use full notes, but left out words.....must be getting senile...if there is such a thing. Another in your ongoing series of butterflies. You so so very well Ram and as always are such a wonderful addition. Even at times when we await the "written word" in diary, we still have your images to let us know that we anticipate with good reason.

Interesting POV, beautiful saturated green background. Good sharpness (but maybe you could do a little selective sharpen on head) Also very good composition with butterfly on the right side and of course beautiful butterfly
