Thanks for the fine macro shot of this beautiful day moth Ram, the velvety texture of its body and wings are perfectly depicted here in great detail over the contrasty greenish BG. As usual, a very good composition my friend.

Hi Mr. Ram,
A nice capture of this beautiful skipper butterfly. Although not parallel but very good DOF maintained. Excellent composition and sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Another excellent macro of this Skipper, Ram!
Amazingly good DOF for f/5.0 and great focusing one the eye and head.
Sharp and crisp with good detail.
I think the DOF could be a bit deeper. An aperture of f/16 usually works well and then a touch of flash will bring the shutter speed back up to about 1/200.
Brilliant BG that contrasts perfectly with the brown Skipper.
Very nice work my friend!

Beautiful picture. I like this olive brown butterfly on this green background.
Well composed and exposed. Sharpness also very good.
Thanks for showing

Excellent shot of this Skipper again and you have portrayed it with immaculate sharpness and clear details. Superb lighting, exposure and DOF. I like the pose captured on the edge on that leaf. Great POV and composition. Kudos.

Sir, I thought of writing that this is not Ram sir's normal picture then I read your note. The eye view shot is perfect. Ganesh

Hi Ram Sir,
In fact I also came across one of these moths, a couple of days back, but unfortunately i didnt have my camera then.
Good composition. I like the way the moth sits on the egde of the leaf.

This guy seems very cooperative and gives a really fine pose here!
Skillful capture, the details in the insect is very well recorded and the 3-D feeling is there...
A pleasant composition where I appreciate the diagonal!

Very artistic POV, but still a very good documentary picture of this small butterfly species. I like contrast between green BG and natural colours of insect. You kept the main object with very good details and sharpness, what - in my opinion - was not too easy, especially from this point of view :)

Muy bueno el acercamiento que lograste al retratar ese saltarín, como se le llama aquí. Bello fondo, posadero y colores.
