'The Small Salmon Arab, Colotis amata is a small butterfly of the family Pieridae, that is, the Yellows and Whites, which is found in Asia.'


I shot this butterfly in Rajasthan last year. It is a male of the species.
This is yet another picture from my archives.
Thanks for looking.

Hello Ram !
It's so good to be back on TN and to see your wonderful pictures again, I missed it ! And you have found a real treasure in your archives, today, with this gorgeous post ! I love the warm and vivid orange color, but other aspectsd of the picture are just as beautiful - the details, the composition, the POV, the pose of the butterfly... It's a great shot of a species which I have never seen (I think) ! Very well done !

Hello Ram,
Great photo in very beautiful warm colours. Excellent contrasts. Very sharp and good details. Pleasing OOF BG and composition.

Hi Ram,
Nice picture with 3-D effect. Very well done. Have a nice weekend.

Dear Mr. Thakur,

Another superb contribution from you!

A lovely macro capture of the Small Salmon Arab butterfly with great details! The colors are perfectly natural and very well shown through the capture. The sharpness and POV are well done along with nice use of the shallow DOF. The flower adds huge amount of beauty to the picture and the blurry BG looks wonderful too. Wonderful composition.

Have a nice weekend!

best regards,

Hello Ram
what a splendid shot of this Small Salmon Arab, great colors, i like the orange flower against the green BG and the nice Butterfly

Hello Ram,

This is a very delicate and elegant composition, in the best TrekNature tradition!
The wings of the butterfly has this silky-crisp texture, DoF spot on and the subject stands out well...
A well framed scene presented in a dynamic composition!
