Wow, first of all, welcome to treknature! A wonderful macro that allows me to see his face and the tiny details of his legs. Nice contrast, good depth of field, and terrific point of view. Again, welcome.

hello manoj,
nice capture, i liked the frontal pov and the focus on the eyes, nice effect of light passing through the wings,
tfs & regards

Hi Manoj,
Nice macro. TFS.

Hi Manoj,
This looks like Spalgis epius to me. I have seen it in other parts of SE Asia, but not in India. This is a very intersting point of view, which shows the head and eyes very clearly. It could probably benefit from a little sharpening and a small increase in brightness. I'll maybe do a workshop and post in a day or so. Thanks.
