Most honoured congratulations on this milestone marker Pankaj. You are and remain a humble man of great talent, yet your cup is never too full as not to learn. when I first came here I had an ego problem:-) Now I realized that I have learned more here as in images and people and combination thereof...than any other time I can remember in photography. TN is a Masters Class!

You celebrate the occasion of your 300th posting with an excellent and most appropriate open-wing capture of a Plain Tiger taken from underneath.
The technical qualities are excellent and the composition on the white flower nice to view.
Well done my friend and thanks for sharing this beauty. I look forward to seeing many more from you, be it butterflies or landscapes.
Best wishes, Ivan

You are showing a very fine portret of the butterfly. There is an unusuall POV giving an interesting perspective over the butterfly. You have well chosen the DOF showing good sharp details over the whole insect.
Thank you for sharing,

CONGRATULATIONS on your 300th post and we all wish to see many many more from you. It has been my pleasure to see your posting and to know you as a person.
This is an outstanding shot and you show a fabulous perspective here. Lovely colours and details and the image is tack sharp. I have tried to get around it on so many occasions but failed but you did a fantastic work here. The wall serves as a fine BG too. Thanks for sharing this great image.

Hearty congratulations of reaching the significant landmark of 300 posts up on TN, Pankaj!
You have made a valuable contribution to TN through the sizable body of your quality pictures in less than two years and grown from strength to strength as a gifted nature photographer.
Your 300th post is brilliant in terms of innovation. From this POV, we get to see a Plain Tiger with our necks craned up. The details and colours on the wings are fabulous.
The plain grey BG does wonders to the main subject.
Wishing you all the best for your next 100.

At first congratulations for your 300th picture. I like the quite funny picture you have chosen, I almost would say "coucou" (in French). Very nice colour-combination and excellent sharpness like always. I would like to thank you also for the nice workshop you have done for my Argynnis picture. It looks very pleasant.

A rare composition, very details, off beat, yet so perfect!
I can only say you've put in so much effort in each shot of yours, not just to make them beautiful, but also in the notes that you so beautifully pen, each shot has taught us something new, all that effort has yielded a lot to us, your fellow travellers on TN. You once mentioned in a critique that Vishal(shal) was one of your inspirations, let me try and inspire him back with your work, because that's what it is, my friend, an inspiration to us!
Thank you for your immense contribution to this site, and to my knowledge.Thanks for constantly encouraging people like me!
