[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Presently I spend my time teaching photography to some deaf students at an institute managed by All India Federation of The Deaf, a NGO. This picture was taken inside the campus while I am instructing them how to take outdoor pictures. I am not a butterfly expert so I am not sure whether it was a Common Emigrant butterfly (Catopsilia pomona)or some thing else. But I found a typical similarity with my students or myself. In a developing country like India, such handicapped children are still neglected, though they are always eager to get the colours of the life perhaps like this butterfly. Or the butterfly on the flower with rugged wings can exemplify me.....

Hello Parthasarathi,
Nice to see you posting again! But I hope you're not as worn out as this butterfly! Even though this is worn it looks very beautiful here on the red flower. Excellent details and wonderful colours that stand out against the grey background. I'm sure you're highly appreciated by your deaf students!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Parthasarathi,
Beautiful photo of this butterfly and flower. The butterfly is a bit out of focus, but the colours are very beautiful. Great contrast against the BG. Very good composition and POV.

Hi Parthasarathi,
Excellent capture of this butterfly and flower; great POV and composition, sharp fine details, bright natural colours.

Hi parthasarathi ,

Beautifully isolated white butterfly and red flower. I like the framing and pleasing shallow focus in making the image pops.

TFS and warmest regards,

Hi Mr. Partha,
A nice capture of this common emigrant butterfly. You have captured it with very good details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Very nice composition - the classic butterfly pose. :)
How wonderful tha tyou are working with the deaf.
Great stuff!

Hallo Parthasarathi
I read about the good work you are doing and I respect you for that, as I am sure you must have loads of patience to get deaf people to understand what you want them to hear. Altough it seems as if this butterfly has seen better days, I still think it is rather beautiful. A very striking insect with visible details. You managed to capture this beauty in a lovely pose. I just love the obvious "veins" on the wings as it creates some kind of sovereignity. Great focus, sharpness and composition. A definite PPPP Pretty, perfect, picture photo. The red flowers highlightes the details of the butterfly even better. This is indeed a "ladies" butterfly. Very soft and delicate to the eye. Thanks for this contribution. Best regards and thanks for the work you are doing.

This butterfly with its wings frayed at the edges looks very attractive on the red flowers, Mr Sengupta.
The picture is well-composed and technically superior.
I'm sure your learners find an effective teacher in you.
Thanks and regards.
