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.

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

It's a beauty! Lovely little creature - so delicate and luminous! Amazing!
