Hello Arjun,
the butterfly has been well captured. Your sharp picture nicely shows the beauty of this species.
I recommend, to note the size of butterly, just to indicate that it is much larger than similar looking European Lycaenids, such as Lycaena virgaureae.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Arjun,
Stunning picture with wonderful colours and details. Even in this short time, he has picked up some small nicks on the hindwings, life is hard in the forest!! Thanks

Wonderful colours, excellent sharpness and splendid details.A beautiful composition, lovely presentation.
Thank you!

Hi Arjun,
Great colors on the butterfly and a great POV.

Question: is this a butterfly or a moth?

Cause butterflies never sit with their wings open, untill this was a post landing or pre take off capture :). On the other hand months are not known to be so bright and colorful. I ask since you r the specialist. I see you have a lot of butterfly captures in your album.

Oh, what a warm and beautiful orange, this butterfly is like fire! It is a very nice picture with beautiful colour and a great pov. It looks like the butterfly took a pose so you could take its picture. It is perfect, the wings wide open in the light. Well seen Arjun, thank you!


Hello Arjun,
super fine captured of this beautiful butterfly!
perfect exposure and focus in total sharpness, vivid colour and details
well done

Hi Bro,
This is a very good picture of my favorite butterfly. The diagonal composition and near perfect DOF makes this a pleasant picture to watch.

Ciao Arjun,
bella foto di questa farfalla.
Perfetta la messa a fuoco sulle ali e colori molto intensi e piacevoli.

Hi arjun,

nice picture with vibrant colors but when u observe bit carefuly at the left wing u see some damage and also at the right wing lower portion... according to my knowledge these happen only few days after it's metamorphosis when it has faced the callenges of the "wild." I might be wrong also...but overall nice pic
