I request the TN members not to give any smileys to this post however you are most welcome to comment.

The butterfly posted belongs to Lycaenidae family. this one looks like Common Pierrot to me but i am not much sure about the id, any help in this regard will be appreciated.

Hi Pankaj,the choice of point of view make a difference,very excellent work,great shot whit perfect details and colors,my ebst compliment,Luciano

A fine image and worthy of points, however I shall respect your wishes. I am sure Rob will appreciate the thoughts as well....there is a passage in our Bible...

Therefore I say to you, do not be anxious about your life,
What you will eat or what you will drink.
Neither should you worry about your body,
What you will put on.

Is not your life more than food and your body more than clothing?

Behold the birds of the air.
They neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns;
Yet your heavenly Father feeds them.

Are you not of more value than they?

Hello Pankaj,
Superb capture of this lovely butterfly in a beautiful pose also showing a glimpse of the upper wings. I like the sharp details and the fine natural colours that look really great aginst the smooth beige background.
I'm sure Rob will appreciate this and our thoughts are with him.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Pankaj,

Beautiful butterfly as a dedication to our dear friend Rob. It is hard not to think of Rob, Joe, Sumon and Howard as I write my critiques. Lovely colors, details, background and composition.


Hi pankaj,
Rob has been a wonderful contributor to TN and its sad that he was forced out and its a wonderful picture to dedicate. I liked the POv and sharpness on this picture. The colors are amazing
What is that haziness around the flower?

Hello Pankaj,

This is a very nice photo of the butterfly. Very nice composition with the sharp clear butterfly and flower and the blurry backgraound. Color tones suits well in the image and the flash was used with very much skil.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Pankaj,
A very nice dedication for Rob...
Lighting, POV, details, color tones and composition are very nice. TFS
Best wishes,

Hi Pankaj,

Excellent capture of this butterfly with good composition, sharp details, nicely blurred BG and bright natural colours. Worthy of full points but as respect to our mistreated members not marking.

Lets have a vote and sack the poor administration of this site! I admit I am guilty to the same crime as these excellent photographers. I will now behave but if I will get banned my photos will leave this site the same moment.

Hi Pankaj!

You certainly have your reasons, but it would be fine and interesting to know...

I see you come back to your favourite subject; you have treatened it in your usual fine manner: it's sharp, well composed and the colours are fine. It's a nice dedication.

Kind regards
