Beautiful. Great natural image. Beautiful butterfly, perfect sharpness, great natural colors and good blured background. Also good exposure and nice composition with leafs and butterfly on the right side.
As for the background there is a little noise visible on my screen - it is easy to remove the noise on this photo - maybe I will post a WS later
Best wishes ;-)

Nice capture of this Sorrel Sapphire.
Interesting choice of name since sapphires are usually blue and this one doesn't look very blue to me.
Still a nice shot though,and well composed.

A fine capture of the female of this Heliophorus species Ram, most probably as you say, sena.
You succeeded in achieving fine sharpness and a full DOF on this little butterfly in this dorsal POV when the wings were less than half open and nicely composed on the spray of leaves against a suitably OOF natural Bg.
TFS this fine image of new genus to me.

Great capture of this Sorrel Sapphire butterfly! Excellent colors and contrast
Very good framing and luminosity. The details and sharpness are very good also.

What a lovely butterfly captured in a very nice natural environment. Beautiful light and colours and the butterfly is sharply in focus. I like its pose and the little tails!
Many thanks for this beautiful contribution! Best wishes, Ulla
Hi Ram sir,
Outstanding shot of this beautiful butterfly but I fear this is not Sorrel Sapphire but Purple Sapphire. And this a male species. The marginal red crescents framed with red has a prominent white band which is absent here hence this one is a Purple Sapphire. This is a very neat and sharp image with lovely colours. Superb composition.

The Sorrel is an herb...so naturally I am wondering why this butterfly called such...unusual angle..but no detracting....actually makes it a bit more interesting...but back to the Sorrel....its that a common herb in India?

What a good DOF you have used! Even with the wings nearly closed the whole insect is in focus and sharp details can be see. It is very well how you have shown the surface of the wings. Even the fibne veines of the wings can be seen and delicate shadows give depth to the surface. The strong light you have had rendered very good and saturated colors.
Thank you for sharing,
