Wonderful species, Arjun.
I like the fact that you didn't rotate it to the right(clockwise).
Good close up composition-wise; there's enough space between the Common silverline and the frame of the photo.

Bonjour Arjun.
Trés beau papillon, jolie image, mes félicitations.

Hello Arjun,

TYou have made a very good close-up of this butterfly. The image is so sharp that even the scales from the wings can be well seen. The pattern and colors of the wings are well shown. The sharp image of the butterfly looks very well against the blurry background.

Thank you for sharing,

Hello Arjun,
This is a very noble butterfly with its silver-stripes on the wings`! Very pleasant and simple composition, fine colors and excellent sharpness. Beautiful to see the grey color of the eye reminding the stripes and making this butterfly look so lovely.
