This beautiful butterfly was sitting on a marigold of the restaurent where we took a break for lunch.

I wish all my dear friends at trek nature a very happy and prosperous new year 2007.

Hi Pankaj.
Extremely well done shot. I like your reproduction of two different colour tones; yellow and black-white. It is very expressive and skilful. Great lighting and perfect sharpness of the butterfly and flower. Wonderful combination of lights and darks. POC and DOF are selected nicely too. BG is very impressive. TFS and kind greetings.
Happy holiday time to you.
