a natural reproduction of Paplio paris which in my opinion belongs to the most beautiful swallowtails. A well-focused and sharp picture of the butterfly.
Best wishes, Peter

Fantastic. You are lucky to get one. Beautiful Species, little more cropping would bring details in the butterfly?!!
Nice colors and good POV. Your lens doing great job, ofcource you are behind the camera.

I am presuming that this is first of the series of Paris Peacock pictures we can expect from you. This is a nice position to shoot the butterfly from. The picture has come out very well despite the harsh lighting conditions and reflective background.

Hi goutham ,
A lovely shot of this paris , the sharpness and details are great,as satish has said a bit more crop would have brought in great details of this beauty coz of ur lens and your skill to take macro. Very well done on this.
Outstanding shot of this beautiful butterfly with such lovely colours and sharp details. The iridescent colours look amazing. Even I had posted a similar butterfly a few days back which I later understood is rare in our part and might have migrated from the western ghats - the Banded Peacock. Superb lighting and exposure. I like your top POV and the patterned BG. Very nicely composed too. Kudos.
