Hello Sumon
Fantastic mating shot of these Grass Blues,
Great composition,DOF and contrast,
Excellent lighting and POV,Superb shot,friend.


Great composition - I love the heart shape of the two sets of wings combined and the interesting angle of the blade of grass. Wonderful!

I think I would title this "Opposing Viewpoints". for this compositional reason it is set aside from the pack of others as in a natural point of view. And of course it is clear as can be....but you already knew that eh? Great...

Hello Sumon,
all your butterflies and moths shot are excellent. The clarity and composition, especially the perching position are nice.
This one , even brown subject stands out of the near-brown BG.
Great and excellent sharpness.
