[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Friends, I have finally succeeded in getting an internet connection, and how!
This is a portable device working on mobile technology. The only trouble is that though it claims to transfer data at 153 kbps, it actually does it at 3 kbps, ha, ha, ha!!! I tried to upload a picture through it yesterday and by the time I had finished writing a note, it had lost connection with TN, fully and finally!
Today, I am posting this new picture from my son's place.

I shot this butterfly during my road journey to Himachal Pradesh in August. The subject was perched very high on top of a bush, so I had to use my 105mm to shoot it from a distance, looking up at the sky. As a result, there is slight OE on the wing but not all that bad either.

For detailed information on the species, please refer to my previous posts of it.
Thanks for looking and regards to all.

Hello Ram,
exceptional clarity in this shot.
+++ Rich colours and decent lighting. Great sharpness and detail. Decent coomposition. The sky is the perfect BG.
--- Nothing :)
Well done,

Hi Ram,
a very nice shot with good exposure and sharpness.
Lovely colours and nice lighting.
It's pity about the leaf in the FG, if you had raised the
camera a bit, maybe it was possible to you got the whole butterfly, but nevertheless it's a nice picture.
Well done.

Superb colours and details in this lovely creature.
Congratulations on the new internet connection, but I hope you can soon increase your speed. Out thanks to your son for helping you out here

So you have your basic RGB and then the focus on the complimentary yellow. Fine detail. Nice notes. Gave me a chuckle...but perhaps not funny to you. At least your back.

Hi Ram,

This looks more like a painting than a photograph. The colors are magnificent. Excellent details showing the rather plain butterfly off very well. The simple composition is excellent.

Hi Ram,
Considering the angle you had to take this from, it is an excellent shot....the colours of the red flowers and the yellow-green underwings of the Emigrant make a wonderful contrast...the veins on the wings are also beautifully clear....super work.
sad about your internet connection. There is nothing more frustrating. I can empathise.


Hi my friend, Ram

A vivid colouration with fine details and focus!
Lovely colours and OOF, very well composed and exposed.
As ellis49 (Gert) said, its's pity of covering the part of wings of butterfly, but it's still lovely shot. :-)
Well done and TFS,
Warm regards,
