Hi Ram,very artistic capture of the side B of this lovely indian fritillary,a very acrobatic location and a wonderful sharpness,not easy,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Ram,
It is a lovely butterfly specie with colors and shape close to Argynnis pandora, the cardinal butterfly which is common throughout southern Europe and is also found in northern Africa and western and central Asia.
Excellent details and colors. Very nice specie.

Hello Ram,
The Indian Fritillary is very pretty as we can clearly see from your presentation. Like all fritillaries, they are as attractive with closed wings as they are with opened. The upside down pose is not normally seen, I like it!
The focus is very sharp displaying excellent detail and the exposure is right on the button.

Ciao Ram, lovely composition with nice flowers and beautiful butterfly, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
