Hello Samiran,
Wonderful macro of this mating couple in superb sharpness, details in splendid light and natural colours. Pleasing vertical composition.

Hello Samiran,
This almost looks like a mirror image. In fact, I had to look twice. What a beautiful couple and a fantastic image. Well done indeed!

Super capture of these mating (not 'matting') butterflies, Mr Nandy. (Forgive me for pointing out spelling error.)
Very precise focus and lovely natural colours.

Hello Samiran

Lovely picture with tons of details. The colors and the exposure is spot on. On composition i felt the picture is bit tight , but it does not affect this beautiful picture in any ways.
