When I look at this species I really regret that such butterflies do not occur in Europe. Beauty, transparent wingd and vivid colours make this species very attractive (even if there are a lot of more colourful butterflies).
According to technical aspects I like DOF and profile POV. Sharpness is also good. On the other hand I would keep some free space above the butterfly, especially that on both sides there is a lot of it :)
TFS and best greetings,

This is so fantastic. Satish did tell me that you shot this beautiful butterfly. The lighting and focus are so perfect. You chose the right Point of view to show that the wings are as clear as glass. Lack of reflections from the wing makes it so beautiful. You had to sacrifice a bit of DOF due to bad lighting as mentioned by you.
This is one of your best Butterfly pictures.

Wonderful clarity in the glasses of the wing Goutham.
Sharpness is perfect and color contrast between the orange/brown tones of the wings and green tones in the background are most wonderful.
I'm sorry to tell you, but I'm not that fond on composition.
Cropping on top and lower site are to tight imho.
Would love to have seen this lovely butterfly in an vertical composition with more space on top and lower side.
Warm regards, Harry

Very interesting subject - I would not have id'ed it as a butterfly. Very nice details and DOF (despite 5.6!).

I too regret that these beautiful butterflies do not occur over here. You have caught this one very well and I would love to see the one in vertical format becuase I really feel that there is a need for a little more space above and below on this one. But otherwise the composition, sharpness and DOF are excellent.

I share your excitement at seeing this unique butterfly with your own eyes, Goutham.
The picture has come out very beautiful with the tripod and selection of aperture was well suited to the conditions.
Thanks for sharing this marvellous capture and best regards.

Hello Goutham, So you could fulfill your wish by visiting Netherlands. You could not only see the butterfly butalso could photograph it very well. Beautiful shot with immaculate sharpness and details. TFS,

I've never seen a Glasswing and I understand your excitement! It is really fabulous and you've captured it in a perfect pose from a low POV and showing very sharp details and lovely colours. Brilliant composition too!
