I consider myself lucky to get this shot. Right after I took this picture, butterfly flew away... Slightly cropped and adjusted with PS Elements 2.0

Nice shot Sanjay....good detail & clarity of the butterfly and nice shallow DOF. Nice to see you shooting & experimenting in context oustside your main characteristics!..Shows good motivation to better yourself, and the creativity to try other ideas.
Love your graphical elements & use of colors in your main type shooting; but think expanding, like you are doing , will benefit in seeing "Outside the box" of what you are accustomed to shooting. Keep up your great work!

I don't know if it was luck or skill; either way, it is a wonderful capture.

Great color, saturation and DoF, Sanjay.

Very nicely done. ..mike ;-]

Beautiful macro, Sanjay. The colors, composition and DOF are wonderful. I think you have surpassed my ability in macro shots!

I'm in a slump again...my shot from yesterday only received 3 comments all day and I must have made 15-20! Even the regulars who always comment on my work have not been commenting! Today I have a really nice shot posted, but so far it has gone completely unnoticed! I don't understand what I do wrong!

Take care my good friend, Don

Sanjay, this doubled beauty in your gallery DEMANDED I come down and comment!

But everyone's already "stolen" my ideas: super catch, gorgeous macro, etc.! So I can only add : see it again next month!!
