Hi Dinkar,
Great open wing POV of this Postman. Incredible color patterns on this butterfly. Lovely simple composition. The plants seem OE though. TFS

Colours and details very good. Very nice butterfly and macro photo

Hi Dinkar,
Nicely composed shot with good, diffuse background. The foreground plants a bit over-exposed. Could probably isolte them and bring their brightness down if you wanted to spend the time in post processing. Thanks.

Hi Dinkar,the pic is perfect and th butterfly is beautifull,the colours are fantastics,thanks for share,Luciano

Hello Dinkar,

A beautiful image, well done! I'm assuming that it was a captive, photographed in a butterfly display, as it isn't a species native to the Chicago area.

Just a little bit over exposed.
