the Lime Blue,
Chilades lajus,
Lycaenidae family.

Friends, I took a break from TN and here am back again, missed your images all these days and comments too.
This time we have good monsoon and lots of activity happening here. But not shooting like before but here is one image of the beautiful blue captured in Lalbagh, looks like a fresh specimen, which cooperated well enough for this closeup, the way I wanted.

Hello Nagaraj,
Another typical picture of yours with the subtle tints and a well chosen decentred composition. And as usual a lovely butterfly of the Lycaenid-family.

Hello Nagraj

Beautiful photo with fine lateral POV and
the framing leaving that good free space,
with beautiful soft light and color tones, TFS


Hallo Nagraj
Very impressive close-up picture. I like the nice leaf pattern, beautiful light and soft but lovely colours, excellent details of the butterfly. Well selected composition and point of view. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Nagaraj,
It's nice to view a post from you once more. I see you have captured this pretty little blue. It seems to have posed perfectly for you, while giving us a great look at it's pretty wing patterns and earth toned colors. Great job!!

Hi Nagaraj,
Beautifully composed image with fantastic warm color tones, but the wings might be a little sharper, I guess. Fabulous DoF and background blur, very pleasant composition. Shaarp enough in the focus or not, a nice photo.
Best regards, László

Hello Nagaraj.

Gorgeous picture from this Lime blue.

Good point of view on the lateral side of the butterfly. Good minimalist composition of the picture with a warm background, but enough neutral. Sharpness excellent. Depth of field properly managed. Saturation of the colours excellent. Contrast also.

Thank you.

All the best.

See you later on TN.


Hi Nagraj,
Marvellous macro of a small blue! wonderful composition, excellent sharpness and great colors. I love the beautiful clean blurred BG. TFS
