I'm glad and proud to be your neighbour today. Your post simply is superb and so valuable. The picture is magnificent, the two butterflies and the flower, together with the dark background, create a fine painting. Moreover, the unity of the colour tones concerning the butterflies and the flower is so well seen. I'm also delighted by your deep and poetic notes that suit the picture very well.

Ciao Silpa, wonderful couple of lovely butterflies, great contrast against warm BG, splendid colors and wonderful light, excellent sharpness and fine details, brava, very well done, ciao Silvio
A romatic scene with a romantic title! The female blue on the right is looking a bit doubtful though! Technically this is fine and the composition on the silvery seed head with the contrasting dark BG is great.
Nice quote in the note too.
Thanks, we in the north need shots like this to help tolerate the long cold winter.
All the best,

This is superb, Silpa, what a great composition, the colours are fantastic. I really like the powder blue of the wings and that you meet again in the flower. The dark background enlighten the whole scene. Beautiful and very well seen as I can tell from your great notes. Thank you!

What a nice symmetric composition with charming butterflies and so wonderful dry flower. I am amazed with beautifulness of lights and very pleasant colours. Deep brownish BG is great canvas for main bright subject. All details of the insect and plant are reflected with superb exactness and skill. Bravo. Perfect job.
Good picture with tons of details and that metallic sheen! Excellent capture. Did you try tilting your camera a bit to get a diagonal composition? I think you would have got a better POV ( Its just a personal taste )
BTW I sent an IM invite! in gtalk.
What a most spectacular view. A very striking image clearly visible details. You managed to capture these beauties in the most lovely poses. I just love the shiny star shaped flower that separates the two butterflies. It stands out well and the the display of it is just great. A definite PPP – Pretty, perfect, picture. I am not sure if I land in hot water for saying this, but this is indeed a "ladies" photo. Very soft and delicate to the eye. Thanks for this contribution.
A very romantic shot! How cute these two Lycaenidae butterflies on the soft shining plant.
The poem is a very pleasant complement to the picture.
I also like the natural colors of your shot.
Thanks and best regards

First of all, I must compliment you for writing a wonderful note, Silpa.
Secondly, your image has some kind of quality to it that defies the usual, cliche-ridden descriptions. Like the poem you have quoted in the note, it is just a thing of beauty that ought to be seen and enjoyed and not described.
Congratulations on creating this thing of beauty and warm regards.

the dance is really exciting. The two of them look exciting and lovely. the sharpness and clarity of the flower and butterfly is very pleasant against the brownish background.
the striped feelers stand out excellently giving this a shot a good feel of nature in its action.
Well composed that resembles element of symmetry.
