[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
This is a blue butterfly perched on a Margigold flower, I found this on at my rooftop garden on a small plant.

Common Line Blue is a small blue butterfly with a wingspan of 20-24 mm. Its widely distributed and is found all year around.

This shot has been taken with sigma 70/300 apo lens in macro mode, built in flash was used . Raw to jpeg, cropping, resizing and framing done. I wanted the total flower in the picture and so decided for this composition .

I am not much regular at posting or writing critiques but hope to catchup soon,

warm regards

Lovely shot of such a beautiful butterfly. Very sharp and detailed image. Colours are gorgeous. Like the two little tail-like appendages or whatever they are called. TFS

Hi Pankaj!

Your decision to have the whole flower in the picture is comprehensible because it's a beauty. The wonderful) color of it is a bit too dominant at the first look and risks to attract the eye mor than the butterfly. But this is partially compensated by the position of the butterfly that forces the spectator to look at it. I'd like to know the impact of the picture with another background that would detach the butterfly more.

But in the whole, it's a typical picture from you: fine sharpness and details, exceptional colors.

Kind regards

Hello Pankj !
I have almost the same picture, just with another butterfly, but youre is much better ! :-) Sharp details, beautiful colors, wonderful composition and POV, nice blurred BG, and I also like the contrast between grey BG and butterfly and orange flower. And of course, the butterfly himselfis wonderful. Very well done !

Hola Pankaj, nos muestras otro ejemplo de buen hacer y sacar un gran partido al equipo fotográfico. Buen dominio del encuadre y unos colores fuera de serie. Bien captada la belleza de la flor y de la mariposa.

Well done!
