Very comprehensive note. Good, clear image of this mud-puddling Swallowtail. Good DOF and composition. Colours are a little pale, perhaps could be improved with a bit stronger contrast. Thanks.

A fine capture of a swallowtail extruding excess water on the ground Haraprasan, not a frequently observed phenomenon I'm sure. The ant's-eye-view clearly demonstrates the salient characteristics of this beautiful specimen, TFS this my friend.

It is an interesting moment you have captured in your photo. The note you have written is also interesting containing many information. There is a good contrast between insect and backgroun making it very visible.
Thank you for sharing,

A wonderful mud puddling Common Rose. Do they excrete the water by separating the wing from the body? I saw a butterfly doing this but had no idea what was happening. This is beautiful with superb colors and marvelous details. I love the wings with their subtle patterns.

A decent record shot of butterfly excreting, the puddling actually helps the butterfly in its reproductive cycle and they excrete more than their body weight in a day!.
The picture is bit noisy and the shooting conditions were not favorable I think, other wise a decent pic.

Hello HP, Lovely long note and very very informative. But the shot to my notice is not your usual shot. Looks like either it was hazy or was in a slight hurry probably could be that they dont idle too long. Ganesh
Loved your notes.
But this image is EXCEPTIONALY great.
The FOCUS is on the "TINY" drop.
In all humility I'll present you with this W/S showing the "DROP" itself.
WHAT A GREAT PHOTOGRAPER YOU ARE!!!
Mario your student.
