Hello Goutham,
This buttefly is sooo beautiful and you've captured it really well from a low POV. Excellent sharpness and fabulous colours.Very nice light background that makes it stand out.
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Very beautiful specimen, Goutham.
Very attractive composition, brilliant colours and amazing sharpness.
Well done and TFS.

Fantastic capture. Very detailed and crisp. And a beautiful butterfly it is, too! Just got the Sigma 180 and learning to make the most of it. Images like yours sure do encourage! Cheers, Klaus

Hi Goutham,
Perfect capture great sharp focus and natural colors
well done, TFS. Best regards/Lawhill

Hello Goutham,

WOW! What an amazing wonderful butterfly! It looks so graceful here... You got an great POV, and managed to have a nice bg with this little aperture (f/10.0). Colors looks so natural ant the exposition is very well managed...

The only thing is that I would have left more space below and above the insect... Have you tried a vertical composition?

Great work!

Hi Goutham,
It has been such a pleasure watching your butterfly shots from far away Netherlands. You have managed some amazing shots and your gallery has become richer and grandeur.
I feel honoured to find a place in your favourites gallery. I hope and think that I will not dissapoint you.
This is again an outstanding shot of the Longwing. Such rich and vivid colours and patterns with immaculate sharpness. The lighting, focus and the green leaf as BG is perfectly combined to bring about this great shot. I like your POV and the precise DOF. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

Dear Goutham, Very beautiful and very nice composition. Very nicely done, Congrats ! with best regards.vab.
