Hello Manaswi,
An interesting shot of this pretty Common Leopard butterfly taken from an uncommon POV. Focus appears sharp giving us a great view of it's attractively marked wing patterns. The warm lighting really brings out the yellow colors. Looks like there is a visitor in the frame as well, possible a cricket.
