Hello Ganesh,
Lovely capture of this pretty butterfly sharply in focus. Nice light, sharp details and fine colours. The composition is very beautiful.
TFS and regards

Hi Ganesh,

Lovely capture... The focus on one Antenna got lost... It might have been even more awesome if both antennas were in focus... Overall, Nice POV, Super Flowers, and a unique framing! Super catch!

Thank you for sharing it,

Hi Narayanan,

a lovely shot of this butterfly and flower.
nice composition with beautiful colours.


Hello Ganesh,

Nicely composed picture, I like the colours here, its a pity you could not get better background, never the less good image with back lighiting.TFS.

Hi Ganesh,
that's sooo cute - I hope your little butterfly is not a suicide - looking down like it would jump soon ;-)
I like the colours and the light, it's wonderful, thanks

Hi Ganesh,
Very nice close up.DOF,lighting,natural colors,exposure and visual impact are wonderful.
Thanks for posting.

hello ganesan,

fine macro shot of this beautiful butterfly from blue family, i liked the sharp image, and the backlit butterfly, the colours of the petal looks so beautiful.

one suggestion : if you could manage to get a lover pov then this you may have got a better conrasting bg,

anyway i am glad to see that you have started working on the composition too, fine composition.
well done,
tfs & regards

beautiful colours and a great composition!
great details,

Hi Narayanan,
Love the comp with the small hairstreak at petals edge, nice POV.
Very good details, colors, and light, the chrysanthemums look great.
Even an out of focus ant in there :)
Well done,

Hallo Ganesh
Thanks for your well wishes all the way from India. The same to you and your family all the way from South Africa. Thanks also for this lovely image of this dainty butterfly, as well as enjoyment for all the other great postings you shared with us all the way through the year and may there still be many of the same for the future. I wish you a very good (photographic) and healthy 2009, and may you always stay the charming person you are.
Best regards.

Hello Narayanan,
Nicely done in terms of composition. Good lighting.
A bit noise in the background.
Maybe it's worth trying to eliminate it or minimize it if you know the source..

Ohh, que bonita fotografía y con que delicadeza la tomaste Narayanan !
Muy bien captado el espacio y los volúmenes. Colores suaves, muy naturales y atractivos.

Excelente trabajo: J. Ignasi.
