Hi Pankaj!

It's a real pleasure to look at that beauty. I don't look at it as somebody who knows about butterflies, but just as a friend of nature. The colors and the richness of details are wonderful, highlighted by the blurred background. Beautiful and artistic!

Kind regards

Nothing plain about this one - who seems to be the asian equivalent to the american Monarch with almost identical body, but varied wing patterns. Beautiful dedication! TFS and Cheers, Klaus
