[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Anne was not pleased with the angle of exposition of my previous picture of this Red Pierrot. Fortunately, I had the next shot taken from the angle she has wished for, (I hope).
So here it is for you, Anne.

The image was taken hand-held from a distance of about one meter using fill flash. Converted from RAW to JPEG and reduced in size for TN with a little cropping. Not much PP work was required.

Thanks for looking at the same subject again.

Hello Ram,
Yes, I do like the POV more than the previous one of this butterfly. Great sharpness, details and a very good composition. Beautiful contrasting colours.

Hello Ram,

Hope life is good. This is a wonderful photo, yes, the angle is right as stated. The four O'clock flowers( I hope) look splendid with the perched butterfly. Perhaps this photo was taken close to evening as the said flowers keep blooming through the night and stay withered during the day. I have never shot this one.Anne is lucky to have such a fine photo dedicated to her. Congratulations to you both for sharing this one with us.....take care...warmest regards/Abid

Hi Ram.
Once more picture with wonderful vivid colours and attractive subject from you. I am amazed with refined exposure and fine reproduction of every colour shade of the butterfly and flowers. Both green and brown colours of the BF behind the main subject create a very pleasant composition for eyes. Well done and warm regards.

Hello Ram,
What a nice surprise, thanks so much! If I would have known that you had the picture I was imagining, I wouldn't have written my critique :-) I will put the picture to my favourites of course. It's on TN that I had seen this cute butterfly for the first time and I found it so attractive for a Lycaenid. Meanwhile I can recognize it easily.
Herzlich dankt

It always gives me tremendous pleasure to see your comments and pictures. Your constant effort to know this world of wild life gives me some different kind of feelings which is again a great pleasure.

With best Regards,
