[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pardon my ignorance about butterflies.
Finding myself short of butterflies, I dug this one out from my archives!
Frankly, I was keener on the flower than on the butterfly when I shot this picture three years ago. Obviously, it is a mediocre effort.
Thanks for looking, anyway.

It's a beautiful butterfly overall!
Nice POV!
Good on colours!

Hello Ram,
powerful shot, good details, exquisite composition. The strong colours add a very exotic touch. The butterfly looks similar to "Aglais urticae" distributed over the whole northern hemisphere, but there are a few interesting differences in markings and colours at the one you show. I wished I could see it closer and sharper. More details on time of the year the picture was taken would be helpful, too. Maybe you have got another one of that pretty species in your archives? Thank you, and best regards,

well Ram,
I think I must see this one as an art shot not as a good macro, the colours and the composition are realy nice, it is oversharped or something like that because I see something in the shot. But even that I still like it,
good job.
