An unblemished and clean specimen of Gram Blue.
The POV offers an unobtrusive profile of the butterfly with its beautiful markings and eye-spots. The light casts a glow around the subject, making it look ethreally beautiful.
Superb overall composition.
Thanks for sharing this grand image.

Lovely presentation of a blue new to me, with fine sharpness, composition, BG and on a an appropriately contrasting flower.
Even though this is on the shade side, this is first class!
TFS, best wishes, Ivan

Another interesting butterfly from India, light enough to hang on to one petal of the flower! Very sharp showing the beautiful pattern on the wings and the little tails.
ice colours and pleasing composition.

Hi Peter. Nice composition of a small species, always more difficult to capture. Looking into the light or in shadow obviously making things even more difficult. Bluury BG adds to the effect. Nice image!

Great presentation here!.
I like a lot this uncomon POV and composition used, is very well balanced and constructed this photo.
Colors are very good, and the butterfly can be seen with lot of details.
The DOF works pretty well, putting away the blurred background.
Congratulations and thanks for share,

An excellent shot here. You did very well on the hand held shot with no fill flash used. Colors and detail look great. Flawless composition and framing. A real beauty.

Another terrific butterfly post from you, my friend!
I really like the POV you took your image from and also the exposure management. The butterfly appears to be a little in shadow but you managed that very nicely and metered very correctly. Thanks to that, all the details, textures and colors from its wings are lovely. I really like the composition, too, with that beautiful yellow frower there, brighting up the entire frame.
Very good DOF management, as well!
Very well done!
Bravo and TFS

I like your idea how to use workshop with great benefit so much. I look your workshops with great interest. They essentially expand opportunities of Treknature.
I do not cease to enjoy your works, executed in style inherent only in you. This is nice composition, impressive POV, extremely exact DOF. Your parameters of exposure (f/4 and especially 1/500) are precisely selected. BG is perfect in its beauty: nicely coloured and blurred. The image of butterfly and flower is perfect separated from BG, exact sharp (no more, no less) and excellent detailed. Delicate light and colour tones are very expressive and pleasant to eye. Great job. My compliments and best wishes, my dear friend.

Original pose of this lovely butterfly. Pov, details and exposure are perfect. Difficult light here very well handled.
Wings border light gives a plus to the photo, remarking silhouette.

Otra bella macro con interesante encuadre y rotación de la mariposa y su percha.
Ajustado y efectivo DOF que brinda foco sobre el insecto y buena difusión sobre el fondo de la escena.
Me gustan los tonos suaves del animal en contraposición con los saturados de la flor.
Como siempre, acertada inclusión del workshop con las pintorescas habitantes del lugar.
Another beautiful macro with interesting framing and rotation of the butterfly and their hanger.
Adjusted and effective DOF that offers focus on the insect and good diffusion on the bottom of the scene.
I like soft tones of the animal in contraposition with those saturated of the flower.
As always, guessed right inclusion of the workshop with the picturesque inhabitants of the place.

was wir meist nur im Schmetterlinghuas zu sehen bekommen hast du nun auf frier Wildbahn erlebt. Ein ganz tolles Foto mit sauberer Belichtung, gute Farben! Die ASchaerfe und die Details sind einfach herrlich. Das ist eine wunderbare Naturaufnahme.
Gruss und frohes Fest
