Hello Ram,
Beautiful macro of this butterfly, but I should have cut a piece of the right side of the photo. The butterfly is in nice natural colors and pin sharp. Beautiful blurred background too.

Hello Ram
Excellent macro of this tiny Plains Cupid. Nice sharp detail, DOF and composition. The bright coloured plant add interesting and colour to your image.
