Beautiful composition, Ram. The pink flower contrasts well with the butterfly.
I have seen this species, or one very similar, in my country.
Excellent picture

Hello Ram,
A real beauty and presented in an attractive composition. I really adore the intricate markings on these tiny butterflies. Excellent detail and lovely rich colors. Looks like a fine painting.

Hallo Ram

thanks gr lou

Hi Ram
Beautiful, Sharp Image with lovely colors. The POV and the BG are excellent.


Hi Ram,
Excellent photo, I love the composition. Color palette is awesome, sharpness is perfect - the only little destruction is the halfly cropped pink flower at the left bottom corner. Otherwise a photo to be proud of - congratulations! Have a nice Christmas (if you celebrate it).
Kind regards, László
