Nicely selected angle for placing most parts of this tiny butterfly within sharp area of DoF. Of course, this is extremely well focused. Superb shot!

You have now mastered your 70-300mm for macro shots, Pankaj.
The image is immaculate in every respect and the plain green BG is perfect for the subject.
Well done and all the best.

What a fine photo with such a good image! The sharpness of the image is impressive as even wing's texture can be clearly seen. The colors are rendered wonderfull being vivid and natural.
There is an excelent contrast between the insect and the blurry background.
Thank you for sharing,

The picture is a gem, perhaps why the name sounds gem-like in quality..gram yellow is an old mountain term for the color of gold dust in a gold pan..placer gold that is...
Wonderful mixture/blending of complex colours and designs...designs within designs...very nicely done..and simply framed as you do so well.

A brilliant capture of this little Blue butterfly from a nice POV. Great sharpness, lovely colours and a fine soft background.
(I love the cute little face on your intro page too!!)
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
A beautiful capture of this pretty Gram Blue. What is the secret of getting a butterfly in a wonderful position like this? The pose atop the lovely bud is excellent. Beautiful colors and terrific details of the face, antennae and marvelous wing patterns. Background and composition are magnificent.

Such a tiny butterfly on a tiny plant! The dof really brings out some amazing colors of both the plant and the butterfly. The clarity is amazing, the colors are vivid, and when I see these two contrast against each other, one needing the other to survive, I am reminded of how fragile not only life is, but our environment as well. Kudos for posting a fantastic capture.

Outstanding shot of thisbeautiful Gram Blue with such lovely colours and details on its under-wings. Very neat and sharp image with superb lighting and perfect DOF. I like that classic pose on the 'Coat-button' bud. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Thanks for sharing this fine image.
* I will be back.

Cute little Blue in ideal position on the flowerhead. I also appreciate pictures with fine and harmonious colours, what is indeed the case here. The green background is most beautiful and is the perfect complement to the butterfly's wings. Well done.
Have a nice day
