Hi Ganesh

How can we ever be bored with such a wonderful capture of this Red pierrot?
Superb exposure and lighting control.
The DOF presented lovely sharp details from an appropriate aperture.
The richly saturated colours are pleasing on the eye.
You isolated the subject against a plain coloured and natural looking BG to enhance the butterfly. Btw. thanks for the call this afternoon.

Well done MF and TFS.

PS. Pardon me for my short comment as I am rather pushed for time this year. It is more important that I want to thank you for the wonderful friendship you extended to me this past 2008. Also, I want to wish you and your loved ones a joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year. May this Christ-fest and the imminent 2009 bring you everything that is beautiful and admirable, provide all your needs with blissful exuberance, present you with that which is edifying and inspiring, grant you blessed peace and harmony, and bestow upon you a myriad of worthwhile pleasures and breathtaking moments with close friends and dear family.

This is your best shot of this butterfly so far!
Amazing level of detail.
Great sharpness.
Excellent composition.
Superb DOF.

Very well done, Ganesh!


Merry Christmas!

Fine rendition of colours and patterns on this butterfly both of us have shot extensively, Ganesan.
The colours are very rich in this presentation.
I had one nit to pick -- the legs of the butterfly have been cropped off at the bottom. Or did you frame that much in the original shot?
Lastly, I wish you and your family a Happy New Year!

Hi Ganesan.
Happy New Year and all the best to you and your natives.
Superb close-up of a wonderful butterfly. I am impressed with quality of the reproduction of colouration, texture and all other charming features of the butterfly. Lighting also is great and grey neutral BG is very suitable for this colourful beauty. My heartfelt wishes and TFS.

Hi Ganesh,

Beautiful Christmas wish with this beautiful little butterfly. Always a pleasure to look at and best regards.
