Hi all,
Its been a while since i posted in TN , even though I don't post as much as I used to before , I have been a constant visitor to TN.

Name: Common Silverline
Scientific Name: Spindasis vulcanus (Fabricius, 1775)

The Common Silverline is found in open natural vegetation and is exclusive to the Indian Subcontinent.

Brilliant silver lines enclosed in orange and reddish bands bordered black lines makes this a brilliant butterfly to watch and photograph.

Hello Goutham,
A cute butterfly posed on a grass-blade in company of a charming water-droplet creates a very charming shot. Nice blurred background too which harmonizes the whole. Well done, like always
Kind regards

Great image, Goutham.
The arch of the long blade of grass is the ramp on which this gorgeous butterfly seems to be doing its act.
Like that drop of moisture too on it.

Ciao Goutham. Razor details and perfect sharp for this coloured beauty in excellent DOF. Very good light's managment too. best compliments.


Hallo Goutham
The bright colours attract the eye immediately. I just cannot help looking at it. I just love this posting. Perfect detail of the butterfly as a whole. Warm and rich colours. Nice background. Splendid shot. The plumpish body is a delight to look at and the water droplet an additional bonus. I once again browsed through your portfolio, and you have some wonderful photos. This one is no exception. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Goutham
fantastic colours and details, superb sharpness.
A very nice composition with great DOF and light management.

Hi Goutham.
Thanks for visit and kind words. Thanks also for sharing this beauty on a nice leaf with cute water drop as a bonus. Reproduction of all features and details of a butterfly is simply brilliant. I also like wonderful a bit cold colour palette and wonderful smooth BG. You managed to achieve nice 3D-effect. Excellent job. My compliments and best wishes.

Hello Goutham,
This Common Silverline is very pretty! The composition, sharpness and colors are fantastic. Congratulations! Warm regards,

Dear Goutham, I am very impress with the quality of this photo! Great contrast, briliant clarity outstanding dept of field, colors and everything! I am in a crossroad, confused to decide which macro lens should I buy. Currently I am using a full frame Canon 5D MarkII and my little Sigma 70mm macro does not giving me enough working distance! So, I see here you are using long 180mm Sigma macro lens! Are you happy with this product? Do you advice me to go for it or for the more expensive Canon alternative?
Please, help with an advice!
Best Regards,
George Veltchev
