Good shot Mukundh
Are they scarlet swallowtails?? I have a photo at home I'm trying to find out what it is.
Good focus and capture.
I would have placed it not in the centre like this but it is well composed shot with fine colours.
TFS / Thanks for sharing

hi mukundh,
good to see these b'flies mating, i think these are common mormon (papilio polytes polytes Linnaeus), top one female and bottom one male. they are not in comfortable position otherwise one could see both sexes clearly, however good documentation. well done. tfs.

They are such beautiful creatures! I love their colors and patterns. You caught an interesting moment with good details and exposure.. This pastel background is very nice. Thanks,

Hello Mukundh, Nice shot and with a lovely bang. Excellent focus and strong clarity. ganesh

Ciao Mukundh,
spettacolare immagine di queste bellissime farfalle catturate con ottimi definizione e POV, che mostrano molto bene le loro caratteristiche, in un splendido momento di accoppiamento, molto belli e naturali i colori.

I think the composition is okay for this particular subject. Exposure is really good, and blurred background works out well. You might try increasing the contrast a little bit, but here I am only quibbling. Gary
