Maravilloso conjunto. Algo forzada la iluminación

Hi Haraprasan.
Your LED torch worked perfect for a good light and we can see great detail in the butterfly/moth. Even the plant he is on has shown up beautifully as an image of his environment.
Wonderful,

Kathleen

hello Harsprasan,
Very artistic composition, like a painting. Perfect contrast between the clear moth and the dark background. I like the fact that you let a lot of space, to show also some parts of the plant. Well seen, well done
