[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another picture from my archives. I haven't shot anything in the last four months.

The Red Pierrot (Talicada nyseus) is a small but striking butterfly found in South Asia and South-East Asia belonging to the Lycaenids or Blues family. Red Pierrots, flying weakly around and perching on the Kalanchoe plant, are usually noticed by excited children in gardens due to their beautiful striking patterns and colours.

Hi Ram.
You have found an amazing shot in archive. Species is wonderful and you have reflected all its beauties perfectly. Colouration is superb. DOF and sharpness are great. Surroundings are fine too. Excellent job. However, why do you not photograph all this time? It bad news.

Dear Mr. Thakur ji,

Wow, another breathtaking capture of this beautiful butterfly with wonderful details! I like the great explosion of colors in the capture.
The butterfly itself is a center of attraction here, I must mention, Sir!
The color contrast between the butterfly and the green leaves, is praiseworthy. The sharpness and POV are perfect, as usual in most of your shots.
Again, a very well done job!

A belated Happy Diwali, Sir!

kind regards,

Hi Ram,
Great capture with stunning colors and fine shaped details!
Well done!

Hello Ram,

Hello Ram,
What a beautiful butterfly you post for all to enjoy viewing. The colors are gorgeous and the detail is excellent!! Wonderful exposure and composed very well. You have an exceptional gallery of fine photos. TFS.

Hello Ram,

A lovely composition with a beautiful model!
Excellent texture - silky-crisp - in the wings, the pattern is well reproduced in vivid colours...
I notice how the point of view shows both wings, and the accurate focus makes the butterfly stand out so well!
