I think perhaps the East indian eye does not see blue the same as westerners....and it is a philosophical or perhaps even a genetic or nationality trait. I say this because your combination's of colours with oms exceptions tend to seem correlated in a way which I am still learning...but do keep on...!

I've been away for a while but as soon as I saw this image I just had to look at it. What a beauty it is - so crisp and clear. Perfect colours too.

A beautiful colour combination.
The vivid yellow and red are striking.
Excellent POV and a lovely classic butterfly pose.
The DOF is very good,the OOF green BG makes a wonderful contrast for the subject.

A en excellent portrait of the Grass Yellow, a species that does not settle with open wings. Technically this is excellent and the composition with the red flower adds an extra touch of colour.
My best wishes to you on your retirement Ram!
I look forward to seeing the results of your trips to the nature reserves around Delhi. Baratpuhr for instance is one that I have dreamt of visiting but am not likely realise.
I wish you and your family a fine and healthy 2009,

Hello Ram !
I am happy to hear that you'll have more time for yourself, now, and I hope you'll enjoy it - can't wait to see those bird pictures you're speaking about ! :-) This picture is fantastic in every way, but I specially like the vivid colors, like on all other of your pictures. They just seem to jump out of my monitor to cheer up my day. Composition, POV, BG and details are excellent too, as usual from you. Very well done !

So, does this mean "retirement". If so, congratulations, I'm sure you will enjoy every moment of it.
Good shot of the common grass yellow, a species we get in Australia too. Great combination of colours. Good sharpness and composition.

I like this strong color saturation and contrast in the yellow and red to such good clarity and sharpness for this butterfly capture. The legs are in good focus although I see a blur on the wing edge perhaps due to motion?
Very nicely composed view. Great work.

There are such amaising colors in your photo! You have rendered so well the yellow color od butterfly's wings. It is not only the color that looks great but the image si so sharp showing even the fine veines of the wings. It brings me such a joy looking at your photo especialy now when here it is all covered by snow and temperatures are about -15C.
Thank you for sharing,

when I read your notes in the introduction, we are almost in the same situation. Having a good camera is just a dream in the younger days. I remember of having a "Seagull" after saving for about a year from my pocket money during the school days. Then have to save for children's education.now only a bit affordable.
after so long. Enough of the story.
The lemon grass and the flower is really striking with excellent dense and saturated colours. i love its brightness and superbs clarity.
Really splendid shot of the butterfly at the flowers.

A great snap. The vivid colors and natural matching of the insect with flower are very impressive.
