[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a special butterfly I found and shot on my school campus today morning.
The Himalayan Dark Clouded Yellow has quite different colours and features as compared to the Common Clouded Yellow found elsewhere in the world.

Hello Ram,
Brilliant capture.....Incredible clarity, focus and sharp details. Very nice image. The exposure is perfect. I like this interesting scene with a lovely specie of buterfly.
Thanks for sharing!

Hello Ram

Excellent macro of this Colias species, very nice composition, nice POV, nice lighting, excellent sharpness and details, very nice color pattern of the wings.



Hello Ram, i have viewed this image on my PC and Imac, and i can't find any sharpness at all here my friend, so some of the above comments and authors are wrong, (point for point) or otherwise known as back-slappers...,

Best Regards,


PS. i would suggest that TN members be honest with their critiques, and not repay a compliment with a compliment.

Hi Ram,
I feel the focus is more on the flower. Composure is good. Over all I expected a better photograph from you.

Delicate composition with a dark BG but lets guess the leaves of the environment; beautifully highlighting butterfly wings and the special focus on the flower on which it rests. Very beautiful work, Ram !!!
