NIce work. Very good focus with nice detail on butterfly and great texture on leaves in foreground. Exposure of white flowers well managed and very natural colors throughout frame.

Hello Pankaj, amusing coincidence, one is has thousands of kilometers and one places the same butterfly. It is a very beautiful photograph, the green slices very well with the butterfly and I love the small white flowers on which it is posed, still a super shooting, cheer
Very nice portrait of a Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui), not the Indian Admiral.
Though the butterfly is a little worn you have captured it sharply and compose this well with the white lantana flower.
TFS and have a good week,

What an imposing Indian Admiral, Pankaj!
One side of the wing standing vertically looks like the ornate sails of a fancy boat commanded by this "Admiral"!
Great shot with perfect clarity and lovely colours.
Well done and TFS.

You live in the wonderful land of earthly sprites and faeries. They will become mischievous because you have captured them so well.

Another beautiful butterfly on the lantanas. I have never come across this species and would love to see it with my own eyes. Lovely colours and sharpness and among the greens it looks fabulous. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Pankaj !
This is a beautiful picture of a wonderful butterfly ! He looks very similar to our Painted Lady, even though there must be some small differences. What I really like here are the soft colors, they are truly wonderful. Also very good details, nice composition and POV, beautiful blurred BG. The pose of the b'fly is beautiful too. Very well done !
