The Dahlia petals supplement your otherwise sharp and neat image of this butterfly from the Blues family, Pankaj. The details on the wing and that little spot in one corner are well captured.
Don't worry about work pressure; it happens with all of us.
Providentially, I'm free from work pressure now :).
Thanks and see you back on regular basis soon.

You probably know that I can't help you with the ID.
You also know that this question interests me, but that I'm much more interested in the picture and its subject. Again, you present us a delightful picture with a very pleasant impact. It's pure, perfectly sharp and held in natural colours. Moreover, it has that indefinable extra which is your secret...

Splendid picture of a fine flower and charming small butterfly. Colouration of the shot, beautifulness of the shapes of petals and insect, delicateness of the lights create an amazing esthetic impression. Well done and TFS.

Another grand image in your natural talents. working with that Nikon has been as if an old shoe...when the glove fits, wear it...wait..I am mixing genres from OJ to imagery!:-) Caught myself...
Wonderful blending of colours and softness using good DOF for dynamics...so glad you are here today!

A very sharp image of the butterfly on a nice lovely colored flower. The petal in the front is also very sharp and looks to be shining.

Wonderful shot of this little beauty and the dahlia petals make the image look so beautiful. This I suppose is TRANSPARENT 6-LINEBLUE. Just check it. Great composition.

Hi Pankaj, a great composition and wonderful colours. The blue butterfly perched on the adge of the beautifully coloured petal resembles a queen! A real beauty with great clarity.

Hi Pankaj Da,
I think Sumon Da is right about the ID. A lovely capture of this beautiful blue butterfly. You have composed it very well with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

It's definitely a beauty you posted here.
Absolutely great colours and nicely focused on that Blue butterfly(overall sharp).
Secondly there's an outstanding perch combined with a wonderful out-of-focus background.
Lastly it's a nice presentation.
Congrats and thanks for sharing; a honest smiley...
