Hello Ram,
A beautiful butterfly with attractive eye spots on it's wings. As Luciano mentioned, the sharpness may be a tad soft, but the natural look of these grizzled wing markings and colors actually make it hard to tell.
The vivid colors of the orangish yellow flower in contrast to the earth toned colors of the butterfly compliment each other perfectly. Well done!!

hello Ram
you have captured a very beautiful butterfly, i love the eyes on his wings,
superb composition and color contrast
Have a good evening
