Hello Ganesan,
a very good close-up of the skipper with good focus and suitable depth of field. The obviously bright sunlight has been managed very well.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Ganesh,
Fine close macro of a Skipper with good sharpness, DOF and lighting and well presented in a fine com+position that includes its shadow.
Well done and TFS!

hello ganesan,
nice shot, good title, liked the pov, sharp image with good details,

One of the closer in pics I have seen of this infamous Skipper which is prolific in your country. Do people see you when shooting macros and what do they think I wonder? A fine close in as I said and eyes so clear...nice complimenting background.
