Hello Ram,
I am presently in Nicaragua visiting my daughter and can only get limited computer use. I just got on tonight and spotted your pretty Common Leopard butterfly. Looks great from here as the detail appears sharp and colors vivid yet natural. I love the full opened wing pose and gorgeous marking it has. Wonderful lighting and you have obtained great DOF with your f/6.3 aperture. Well done!!

Hi Ram,
You have captured an absolutely pristine specimen here that is positively glowing in the sunlight. Similar species here in the UK are usually very difficult to approach, but this is nicely composed with good exposure and sharpness.
Best wishes, Nigel.

hello Ram

Have a good night
Jacqueline
