Hello Ram,
I am once again on vacation visiting our newest grandson, so I haven't had time to get on this site. What a great shot of this very pretty Plains Cupid. Captured in an attractive diagonal pose while showing excellent detail and lovely color tones. Nice soft lighting and just the right amount of exposure.
