A beauty from your archives that you kept from us for too long Ram!
This image has everything going for it: the subject is a fresh specimen of a Gram Blue, the closed wing position taken with a high technical standard, excellent natural colours and well composed with a clean BG.
Thanks and kind regards,

Ciao Ram. Very good compo with brigh colours and details against the blurred BG. Bit tender sharp.

Hi Mr. Ram,
A nice capture of this Gram Blue butterfly. In my view the focus is a little bit soft but OK. Good composition and good BG. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Dear Ram!

You present us a very nice picture of this small butterfly. I like the unity of the colour tones of the background very much, the viewer's eyes are concentrated on the main subject. The butterfly is well on focus and the diagonal composition is well seen and done.

Kind regards


This is an awesome shot Sir!
I can't flaw it at all!
I've tried this Gram Blue, but the resolution is pathetic always!
Very well done!

This butterfly is very similar to Hemiargus Hanno, a south american species.
Successful POV-DOF and well composed too.
