Hi Srikumar,

a real beauty, your butterfly and your shot, even if it would be better to have some light an the critter.
As for an ID, I come up with a male Hypolimnas misippus but you have to check that out.

Thanks for posting! Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Srikumar,i agree with Dietrich for the ID,a rare guest of TN in a magnificent macro very sharp and bright,very well done! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Srikumar,
definitely a very nicely composed image, presenting that conspicuous butterfly on blossoms in an elegant pose from a well chosen low point of view under pleasantly soft light in front of a perfectly supporting smooth Background.
Thank you! With best regards,
Peter

Hi Sri,
Just a demonstration that you're very good on the macro fields, too. :-) Beautiful composition, I like the way how you used the flowers as foreground. Spectacular composition and pose, plus the lovely, warm-tone, noise-free background. Masterwork again! Bravo!
Kind regards, László
