Hola Haraprasan.
Beautiful Macro My friend. Lovely colors and great dedication. Going for Vacations until everthig back to normal, going to miss all of You.

This butterfly is difficult to shoot because it never sits still, HP.
You have shot it in flight and it is a very good capture at 1/800.
I am worried sick about the happenings on TN. Hope common sense and goodwill prevail soon, otherwise we are heading for the worst.

Hello HP, Good note and dedication. Things are getting sorted out and I am going to speak to Sumonda and Joe to get back. I will also speak to Howard and wrote an apology note to Adam on everyone bahalf. Let us get united and talk and spread nature message. Ganesh

Preciosa Haraprasan, parece la nave espacial acercándose a la base jeje. Oportuno momento, buen encuadre y unos atractivos colores.

Your composition is excellent. The butterfly is perfectly placed and is nicely balanced by the greenery in the bottom corner.

I hope you are back with us soon, my friend.

Hi Haraprasan.
Fantastic in-flight shot. I only dream about in-flight butterfly picture. Great work, Superb timing, amazing light green colour palette. I am impressed with excellent details and sharpness of the image and fine composition of the shot. Bravo.

Hi Haraprasan,
I seem to have missed this excellent shot. You rarely see butterflies captured in-flight as it so difficult execute. Good composition, sharp details and bright colours.

Nice flying shot. The colours and sharpness aree good.

Hi Haraprasan,
Beautiful capture of this lovely butterfly in flight. TFS.
Nice to see you again.
