Last Saturday we (Myself and GuruPawan ) had been to OMKAR Hills near Bangalore, after shooting blue damselfly, we moved on to spot this butterfly, which always used to sit on the ground, so couldn’t help with the BG!!!

This was shot when this guy was sucking minerals from mud and drying up his wings in the early morning sun!!

Thanks for visiting and thanks in advance for your comments/critiques

Hi Goutham!
This one looks quite unique. I like the dabs of blue on its wings. The picture is quite sharp and clear.

Hello Goutham,
A very good capture of this colourful butterfly.
Very unusual colours and patterns,I like the vivid blue.
The light looks strong but you've handled it well and got a good composition too.
Nice work.


Another beautiful butterfly Goutham.
I love the colors and the composition in this one.
Great POV and I like the BG.

A wonderful capture, the background accents his lovely colors nicely. It is so wonderful to see so many different varieties of butterfly from all over the world. Very sharp focus on every detail... Lovely!

Hi Goutham Ramesh ,
A beautiful image, excellent composition. Congratulations for your work and thanks to share it with all we.
I waited for more photos yours like this.

Very interesing butterfly, very attractive and an unusual combination of colours. Despite f10 you've managed a shallow DOF so the background is qutie good in my opinion.
Well composed and good sharpness. I like this one a lot.

Hi Goutham,
quite good descripive shot.
Maybe a little bit too closely cropped as the details are not that sharp as they could be.
It also seems to be slightly overexposed.
A little postwork on the original data would certainly bring out the details in the bright parts of the shot even better.
BG is good! A pretty and valuable contribution you made. Thank you for that!
Best regards, Peter

Hi Goutham

What a lovely colour on the wings. Very nicely composed with good exposure and light. Sharpness and clarity are spot on. Nice one! :-)
