Sympathique ensemble. La forme ronde de la feuille est du plus bel effet.

This is a fine composition, sharpness, POV and DOF and the close-up work is very well done! Good bright and natural colours, background is soothing too!

Beautiful shot, and I agree with Claude about the effect creatd by the circular leaf. Colours are beautiful, but at the widest aperture setting, you have a very shallow DOF and from this POV the near wing is rather soft. Getting in closer and using a slightly narrower apertute setting, would probably have given a sharper subject and less distractions in the BG.
TFS and a special thanks for the very informative note

You present this beautiful butterfly from a interesting point of view. The colours of the wings are so fine! The whole picture is very harmonious.

The shot is well composed except that its too central. I would have cropped the image so that its over to the left, giving it room to fly into.
Apart from that its fine, attractive species.

Hello pankaj !
This is a beautiful butterfly that I have never seen before ! I love the patterns and the textures of the wings. Beautiful pose of the butterfly, with the wings wide open. Excellent colors, composition and details, and I also like the round leave on which he is sitting. Very well done !

The round shaped leaf on which the butterfly is perched is a god-sent setting for this picture, Pankaj.
Great POV, sharpness and colour. Maybe a little messed up specimen [like most of mine ;-)] but that is something we cannot do anything about. Indian butterflies lead much more adventurous lives in the open, as you rightly mentioned once!
TFS and take care.
