Apt dedication to a gifted Indian nature photographer, Anil.
This is a remarkable capture and shows how you have registered an upward curve in your own skills as an avid nature photographer.
The act of mating of these two tiny butterflies from the Blues family has been recorded with excellent clarity.
That you have centered the subjects is also fully justified here.

Ciao Anil, lovely macro with beautiful maiting couple, wonderful blurry BG, beautiful natural colors, great sharpness and splendid details. very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Anil,
you nicely captured the couple of this small Lycaenidae-species. The background is
highly suitable so that there ia a good contrast.
The composition could be more attractive.
It appears too symmetric. But perhaps, this was just your intention.
Best wishes, Peter

Namaste Anil,

Impressive capture, the focus looks perfect. Fantastic lighting and details too, the sort of shot I wish I'd taken myself :).
Inspiring work my friend, well photographed.
Great dedication to our mutual friend Hara!
TFS and have a nice Sunday!
