[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear Silvio, my friend, here is an old photo of mating pair of Rounded Piorrots for you, hope you'll accept this humble gift. I took it at a time when I did not know anything about butterflies or photography.I was gifted this Eastman Kodak camera by a female friend from Northumberland in England(I stand indebted to her to this day) and which I carry to this very day, the only camera in my possession...smile. I kept taking photos and knew one day I'll be able to label them and identify them. All my shots are hand held, most in natural light.This photo was taken inside Government Degree College, Tank at my hometown named Tank City where I was born and from which I had to forcefully migrate due to the targeted killings of my sect by the Taliban, for my life was in grave danger there.Good old days when life was so carefree and I was free to do what I liked but today's Pakistan is a difficult place to be in.....hope you and the friends will like this photo....thanks.

Hi Abid,

Anyway, i also briefly explore your web site and realy i appreciated it MF! Thanks also for that. Very pleasant dedication to our friend Silvio, Mr. Butterfly:)
All the best for 2010!

Well done!

Hello Syed,

Best regards

Hola Syed,

nos presentas una preciosa toma captada con una gran delicadeza. El encuadre era difícil y lo resolviste bien y no menos el equilibrio del conjunto, del que también salite airoso; además de esto, lo que más valoro es la captura de los colores y la luz combinados con el fondo, que dan una visión muy agradable del conjunto.
Muy buena pose de la pareja que deja ver perfectamente su acoplamiento y unos interesantes detalles, especialmente de la rama en la que están posadas.
Felicidades por tan buen trabajo.
Un saludo esde España: Josep Ignasi.

Hi Syed,

This is a beautiful shot and the perfect dedication to Silvio. I'm not sure I have seen Rounded Piorrots before and this mating pair is a wonderful introduction. You show their elegance in fine detail and lovely colors. Their wing markings are very pretty. I love the composition with the diagonal branch. A belated happy and healthy New Year to you and your family.

Salam Abid,
very beautiful capture of the mating pair. Nice colours and superbs composition - the soft blurry background is splendid.
Your diagonal composition of the brach from the corners are well thought and give a good effect to the overall view.
A nice one.
