Hello Ram,
A beautiful presentation of the Common Baron. I really like the subtle shades of brown color tones found in its wings. Very pretty markings which are quite detailed and the exposure is perfect.
We have about six inches of snow right now, so it will be a while before the butterflies start showing up here in Ohio.


Ciao Ram, great macro of fantastic butterfly, wonderful natural colors, splendid light, fine details and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
