Hello Hemant,

Very nice capture! Sharpness is good. I like the patterns on the wings and the green eyes. Good POV. Beautiful butterfly.

Hello Hemant,
not an easy task to obtain a good picture of this 'bright' coloured butterfly against the rather dark background under these leight conditions. However, the result is pretty good showing the beautiful wing pattern and shape of this species which is peculiar for the genus Cyrestis.
Best wishes, Peter
