Hi Ram,excellent capture from above of the big pieris,perfect exposure for a perfect white and fine details too despite the wings position and difficult location too. Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Ciao Ram, great macro of nice butterfly, lovely composition with beautiful flower, fine details, excellent light, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend have a good weekend, ciao Silvio

Hi Ram,

The flowers are helping tp frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details of the Large Cabbage White butterfly. The light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Ram,


I remembered you have a very similar photo which I liked a lot. I love this one, too, I just shouldn't like to use the same words again in my comment. :-)
Kind regards from Ireland, László
