Hi Folks

Yesterday I suggested mamcg to change the daily walk routine rather we prefer to climb the mountain where we found some butterflies among them were this couple who were not only small in size but also charged.They were chasing and playing each other and I thought of catching both of them while playing which was again a new experiment for me.

Thank you for visiting and useful feedback
My Best Wishes

As you said, indeed this is a butterfly couple (Common Blue) and you have captured a nice moment in here, Mushtaq!

Great focus on the male butterfly with wonderful details. The female butterfly's in-flight capture is also nicely done. The sharpness and POV are excellent. The colors are natural and surrounding is well done.
Good job!

Thanks and regards,

Hi Mushtaq,

Salaam Mushtaq,

It relinquishes the pain of my legs and feet when I look at, this is the fruit for that we walked ups and down by chasing. Well shot perfect frozen both subjects in focus with beautiful colours, TFS.


This is incredible! I came back to see if my critique had posted and it had not! Good thing I looked! Not only did you get a super butterfly, you got TWO and one in flight! Excellent sharpness! Beautiful shot!

Hello Mushtaq,

You have achieved great sharpness on this very difficult shot. It can be hard to capture one butterfly in flight but to capture two is remarkable.
I love how you have shown their context with these seeding grasses in various degrees of sharpness.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Your experiment paid off - fabulous shot catching the butterfly in flight with some extremely attractively coloured foreground grass, beautiful depth. Best wishes
