Hello Ram,
What a luck to meet this beautiful and very nice butterfly specie. Exceptional quality with sharp details and amazing focus.

Hi Ram,
One of your best photos so far in my opinion. Minimalistic yet spectacular composition, positioning of the moth is spot on, with perfect sharpness and colors. Even the antennae are tack sharp and the exposure's perfect. Lovely shot, absolutely deserves the highest rank. Hats off, standing ovation!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
