[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As mentioned earlier this is the shot of the same bubble blue on the same perch! posted earlier.

I did not crop the image as i wanted to keep the flower, fruit and the leaves of "Touch me not" plant in the frame ( i know this leads to subject being center of the frame )

Workshop posts are welcome and thanks in advance for viewing/critique/comments/workshop

Hi Goutham. Very nice macro.POV,framing and composition are wonderful.Thanks for sharing .José

Fruit and flower are integral to this wonderful picture, Goutham, though I wouldn't mind curtailing the space on the right side.

Another nice shot, but again a little too bright. It's still an Erebia species (Satyridae), not a blue (Lycaenidae), though - compare with Guru's shot posted today.
Regards, Nigel.

Hi Goutham, you show your butterfly well. I think if you wanted to have it not no centred, you could have cropped it off on the right where the plant stops. Very well shown.

Do you know the name of the "Touch me not" plant please Goutham? Is it a crawling plant with little prickles? I have a photo of a similar plant in Fiji and I can't find out what it is called. Thank you

This is a wonderful composition with great details, colors, POV and BG.

I might have cropped this shot to the right hand side of the leaf which the b'fly is resting on, however, it is a matter of personal taste, and takes nothing from your lovely image.

Thank you for sharing it with us again, Goutham!
