|Plain Tiger - at the same butterfly farm near Mumbai|
Plain Tiger, also known as the African Monarch, the African Queen, the Lesser Wanderer and the AK Butterfly, is the commonest of all Indian butterflies and the strongest flier of the genus Danaus. Found throughout the country, including the deserts and in the hills up to 3000m. flies in an undulating fashion and generally remains on wing for considerably longer periods.

I find cosmos are a great attraction to butterflies. You have a lovely photo here.
I must say that there are quite good details in your image, but the composition does not help. The orange flower is well defined, but not your subject, which is the butterfly. Try next time to take more shoots or wait until the subject is posed in a more suitable position.
