Friends, a la Harry (Proframe), I would like to begin with my heart-felt gratitude to all of you who took their precious time out to write their kind words on my 600th post yesterday.

As my 601st post today, I am posting the picture of a Lady Bird I took a couple of days ago in my school campus. There are so many Lady Birds all around us at this time of the year in Delhi it is difficult to overlook them. They sometimes get stuck to my clothing.

This picture of a Lady Bird is my symbolic expression of gratitude to all TN members.
This insect in the image represents me -- my head bent forward in Pranaam mudra -- the posture of obeisance in deep respect for each one of you as an individual.

Thanks for accepting it and have a great day!

Hola Ram, muy bonita composición, con fondo desenfocado que resalta el motivo. Un saludo

Dear Ram,

It has been and always will be my pleasure.
Its a great honour to take a look at your wonderful images and write comments to them.
You deserve it and I've done so with all my friendship.

As it comes to number 601: This is another beauty.
Excellent composition with great clarity, very beautiful color contrast and wonderful soft BG.
Thanks for this and all of your wonderful images.

Best wishes my friend, Harry

Awesome macro. All the detail is clear and sharp. Well presented.
Best wishes,

Hi Ram,

Nick :-)

Hi Ram,

Another wonderful shot, excellent detail, well framed and composed, nice work sir, all the best Cheers Rick :)

Great POV! Wonderful colors. Good DOF. Everything is great.
WOW! 601 posts! That's awesome!
I'm not even up to 200 yet! :)

Hi Mr. Ram,
A nice capture of this beautiful lady bug. Excellent sharp details and a fine composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.


Hi ram
tha would be so fine when it would be sharp
so unfortunatley not so good
but the view and the composition is nice
best regards Toba

I thought maybe I would get lost in your 600th, so waited for today...and congratulations on yesterdays post as well Ram; I do though love the ladybugs..usually here they come a bit later on in summer. but you are in a much warmer climate. My General has returned and I see him today...I shall drop him a hello


A nice composition of the Lady Bird. Nice lighting and background too.

Hi Ram,not your pic number 1 but i like the point of view and the great idea,thanks for share,Luciano

Simpatica presentazione, molto bella la composizione con le foglie sfalsate e il soggetto frontale, buoni i dettagli e molto belli i colori e BG. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Great shot! Outstanding choice of composition with the two symmetrical leaves and the ladybug in this 'pranaam' posture on one leaf make this wonderful.

Hello Ram,
Excellent colors and exposure against a dark BG. Nice POV.
