Hi Narayanan ,
Very nice shot!
Great POV, the details and colours are excellent.
Thanks for sharing!

Ha! You thin you have noise...go check me out..of course I was using a 1.5mp camera...but yours is not noisy to me...it is exceptional in its perch and titled well to go with it which almost makes one dizzy! A fine show Ganeesh!

Gannu, Very nice image. It would have made sense to tilt the camera a bit so that the butterfly is either parallel or looks upward. Also on my computer, I see a distinctive magenta cast. More than the noise, I find this distracting.

Hello Narayanan,

You have made a very fine close-up of the butterfly. Due to the good sharpness of the image wings pattern and colors can be very well observed. I like the way light is comming from behind the wings.

Thank you for sharing,
