This is a reply to the recent comment by Lifeng Li on the paper "Focusing of high polarization order axially-symmetric polarized beams [Chin. Opt. Lett. 7, 938 (2009)]". We analyze the errors pointed out by the comment, further perfect the mathematical expressions, and present a numerical simulation at last.
