I just caught up with that forum thing today, and was shocked to read the one about suspending Sumon from critiqueing for a month!
Please keep posting Sumon da...
I quote Tagore again for you, dada.

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow
domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the
dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought
and action--
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

Hi Goldy,
A lovely capture of this beautiful large white. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

I also suggested to Sumon to keep on posting...this is an excellent dedication and well appreciated from me. I sure cannot speak for others though, only for myself.
Analogous, the butterfly has its head buried in it's work and/or play....a daily routine with a well coloured flora Goldy. May you be thrice Blessed for your creativity, artistic and photographic ability and inner spirit!

Hi Goldy,

This is a perfect picture to be dedicated to our dear friend Sumon! I'm sure he will appreciate it and will realize how many of us miss him so much. Perfect timing to get this shot with the butterfly's head deep in the pretty flower. Wonderful position, colors, details and composition.

It appears to have its head well and truly in the flower!
Superb clarity and great details.

Kind regards,

Hi Goldy, nice to see this from you, good capture. Thee is good detail here, and a very nice composition. Good blurry background as well... I am interested in the waxy look to the flower... are they "waxy" and do you know the plant name... best regards h

Well done Goldy! Very nice macro with a beautiful composition and a very good technique, thanks my friend!


Hi Goldy,
The color combo here is wonderful, I like this.
Very good DOF, detail, colors, exposure, and an interesting comp..
It's great that we can still see the antennae and eye too ;}}
Well done!

This is a nice sharp image Goldy. The color looks a little undersaturated on my monitor. It could be a platform issue ( I use a Mac) or perhaps you didn't convert to sRGB color before uploading???? I like the frame filling subject.
