Hi Akshay,

What a fabulous and unique image of these two Common Pierrotis butterfly's mating,

You have shown us some magical skills in the art of photography here, and what i mean by that is.
The awesome amount of depth of field and sharpness you have displayed, with your Nikkor 18-105mm lens,
I love the composition of the butterfly's, and what's surely taken in their natural habitat,
Top-Draw stuff here and TFS,


A very nice scene you have here. If any comments I would lighten it up a little bit in post processing , otherwise I think it is a great shot


Hi Akshay.
Well seen and photographed good colours and details.
Cheers Dave.
