Hello Arun,
A photo of this Pigmy Scrub Hopper in great sharpness and details. Beautiful natural colours. Nicely isolated from the BG. In my opinion the composition is a bit too much centred.

A superb macro photo, great sharpness, splendid bright colours, a very harmonious composition!!!

Hello Arun,
A very good macro shot of this strange and beautiful butterfly,nice colors and perfect POV.
Have a nice Sunday!...

Hi arun,

You're capturing well this butterfly by a good angle, so it's interesting to see the butterfly with brown wings/body. And, it's harmonized well with stopping yellow flower.


nice picture with great clarity and composition.
