Hello Ram,
A beautiful butterfly with nice wing markings. Even with the harsh backlighting you managed to expose its wings perfectly, displaying excellent detail and color. The white balance is right on the money as the color tones (especially noticeable on the leaves), look very natural. Well done!!
