Hi Pankaj,
a brilliant capture.
Sharp with beautiful colours.
Well done,

Hi Pankaj.
Beautiful capture. Great colour and composition. Great sharpness and detail. Well presented.
Best regards, Steve.

Great capture! Almost identical to the American Common Buckeye - the only difference I see is the color of the two stripes, which are orange/red on the buckeye. Well done with nice detail! Cheers, Klaus

Hi Pankaj,
The composition, colors and POV are excellent in this capture. The wings look a bit shattered / aged. Anyway that's Nature. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Pankaj.

Very good details,grat composition.

Jose Luis.

Super fine colors...Amazing how many you see in these shots. Would make a good ad for the camera or lens company...butterfly and flora showing how to push the limits! Great job.


Hi Pankaj,
Love your butterfly photos...this is beautiful as always. Beautiful color, great postion of the butterfly and excellent DOF. TFS

Hello Pankaj,
Butterflies love Lantana flowers. Nice shot at this pov. Colors are vivid and well contrasted. Blurred background gives depth to this picture. Very well done.

Hi Pankaj,

I hope this series goes on for a long time. Each day you present a beauty! I love the position of this one on the lovely lantana. Gorgeous colors - sharp details - wonderful composition.


Another beauty! What a wonderful palette of colors! And the way the little butterfly is perched so delicately on the flowers makes for a great composition. :)

Hello Pankaj,

Excellent picture of this lovely butterfly! You did a great composition using the great POV you took...

2 things however: I saw some noise in the bg and I would have cloned the upper left flower with vegetation....

Excellent details and great natural colors!

Well done!

Pankaj, This POV is very nice. Excellent capture and lovely composition. Ganesh

A superb image of this animal. Good colours and sharpness.
Best wishes,

Hi Pankaj,
A pleasing & colorful frame, lovely BG.
Interesting POV, perhaps a bit more DOF from this POV would be better IMHO.
Well exposed with good details,
Well done.

You have captured this vetran of a Peacock Pansy from a very good perspective, Pankaj.
The eye spots on both wings are in focus.
Good composition and natural colours make this image very attractive.
Thanks and take care.

Hello Pankaj !
Superb shot of a wonderful butterfly ! I love his markings, particularly this big "eye" on his hind wing. Shaprness, details, colors, composition, POV, BG and pose of the butterfly, everything is excellent. Very well done !

a wow capture
