Danaid Eggfly (Hypolimnas misippus)
My God, this is as perfect a picture as perfect can be, Pankaj! You have graduated to one of the ace photographers on this site, youngman. Congratulations!
I shot some eggfly species in Mumbai this year, but this one is absolutely one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. What colours and designs! Moreover, you have managed the view on both sides of its lovely wings.
Superb POV, DOF, sharpness and colours.
150/100 points from me :-)!
Wonderful contrast in colours on the butterfly and so sharp.
I like this composition with very clean and fine details and beautiful colours.Used POV offers pretty view of upper also underside wings.Very good DOF and perfect sharpness.
Really excellent capture!
Very nice shot of eggfly,
Perfect focusing and colors,
I don't like the framing.
Wonderful capture of this Hypolimnas in an unusual, very nice, pose showing upper- and underwings clearly. Nice background and beautiful colours in this very nice composition. (Only I myself would have cropped it on the right to place the butterfly slightly off-centre´.)
Many thanks, Ulla
wow!! beautiful in deed!! What an amazing macro shot with an awesome DOF, great sharp colors, love the framing as well. TFS
Perfect DOF, Pankaj!
Infact, everything except comp is perfect in this Eggfly shot except perhaps the comp, which could have been a little better if you hd placed the butterfly a little to the right.
Maybe I'm being too fussy!
Best wishes, Ivan
Beautiful fly&beautiful butterfly.Nice POV&DOF!!!
A nice picture of a a beautiful butterfly. The details and sharpness are very good. Lovely colours and nice POV.
Agree with Ivan about the compostion, it's a bit centred.
Un papillon net sur une si large plage, c'est plutôt rare.
I like it when a butterfly is depicted completely sharp.
Very good here!
this image brings up that looking at butterflies is like looking at a picture book. If you look at the outside (upperparts) you want to see the inside (underparts). You captured both of them in one picture, and in a beautiful way. The light on the underside of the wing is bright and shows the details well. Good work, Jacob
An excellent capture of this colorfull butterfly,you captured it with a nice POV,the colors and sharpness are very good,well done and TFS
encore une tres belle photo de papillon,evec un fond presque parfait(il y a un leger bruit).belles couleurs et bonne netteté.l'expo est bien egalement.
Muy bella macro Pankaj con gran punto de vista que permite ver ambos lados de las alas de tu modelo.
Me agrada el DOF y foco obtenidos con buena difusión del fondo.
Sólo criticaría que la mariposa se encuentra algo centrada, aunque la percha saliendo del vértice rompe ese efecto y el marco algo grueso para mi gusto personal.
Un gran saludo... Ricardo
Very nice macro Pankaj with great point of view that allows to see both sides of your model's wings.
I like DOF and focus obtained with good diffusion of the bottom.
Only I would criticize that the butterfly is something centered, although the hanger leaving the vertex breaks that effect and the frame something thick for my personal pleasure.
Best greeting... Ricardo
Maravillosa esta foto y genial colorido, agradable compo y bg. saludos
Otra gran belleza llena de colorido, muy buena la luz y el enfoque. Un cordial saludo
Superbe macro aux couleurs éclatantes. C'est bien net et le cadrage "carré" convient très bien. Bravo
Beautiful sharp butterfly shot. Good colours, sharpnes, details, light and POV.
An all round stunning image - well done.
Wow, really beautiful colors and species. Very nice between the green leafs and BG.
A beautiful butterfly image!
Macro work is very well done, as DOF is spot on and resulting in sharp fine details in the insect...
Well composed in a pleasant presentation!
Great shot, lovely colors. Great DoF, very sharp and nice blurry BG. Well composed picture with square almost format. Very well done.
You really have a great talent to photograph butterflies. This one is so nice, really. I have no negative points to mention and I like this central pose. Everything is so lovely IMO! Those details, lighting, POV, DOF, composition and colors are just perfect! I also like your lovely BG; I guess it is becoming one of your trade mark ;) Well done again with interesting notes. TFS,
Thanks also for your nice comment about my 100th picture.
Wonderful contrast in colours on the butterfly and so sharp. At the same time we can see top view and side view. 50-50!
Très beau papillon,les couleurs sont douces et jolie,l' angle est joli aussi. Thomas
tres joli tableau aux couleurs tres nettes de ce papillon.
bel encadrement ce qui fait un joli tableau
Bon contraste, belles couleurs image splendide
hola Pankaj.- Una bella foto. Muy nitida y con colores muy bellos. Saludos Luis52.
This is an excellent shot on this Eggfly. A spot on exposure has beautiful color saturation. Very sharp detail in the butterfly, yet a nice OOF backround of green foliage to show the butterfly so well.
very beautiful pose, well captured from a good distance.
To my taste, the border could be less dominant to allow more concentration on that very pleasant, subtly coloured image. All the information written into the frame is equally well available in the text of this TN site next to this lovely picture.
très beau se papillon, le cadrage est parfait, le sujet est net, les couleurs sont belles.
j'aime beaucoup ta gallerie.
Great composition with sharp detail and great colours.
Thanks for sharing!

God is indeed kind to MANKIND. But we are (WE) killing
each other in name of this or that.???

Mario. P.S. I saw a lot of these in GOA India.
