Caesalpinia pulcherrima ‘Compton’;


Shot on 12/9/09 in Butterfly Park within Zoo Park in Hyderabad. I think these plants are important for attracting butterflies in one’s garden.


yes it is


The perfect art of Photography …….Lovely I am spell bound ……..nothing more to say than Awesome.


Thanks, …, I use four year old Digital Canon 350D SLR with 18-55mm Kit lens for plants (170-500 mm Sigma lens for bird photography).
It so happens that one get close shots of flowers/ butterflies etc.- and they come out good.
I do a bit of post-processing in Photoshop.
