This is a common Pierot butterfly (Castalius Rosimon) enjoying the last rays of the Winter sun on a grassy plateau. This is a common butterfly of Peninsular India and also found in Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Indonesia.

The background hue is due to the completely dried grass.

This is a well managed image of a back-lit butterfly perched atop a Coxcomb flower stalk.
The maroon BG goes well in the composition.

Hi Himanshu,
The scene's beautiful, colors are stunning, composition's great - but the focus is visibly soft, you lost sharpness somewhere. A pity, because otherwise a very nice image.

Hello Himanshu,
A very artistic picture and a cute subject. I like the colour of the background which gives to the shot a very harmonious aspect. Laszlo's WS even improved the shot and I have to say it looks great.
Well seen.
Kind regards

Good evening and best wishes from Kolkata,

Namaskar Himanshu
I always like to take picture in against light.
You did it very well.
Sharpness is little less, but it does not harm the overall beauty.
best wishes,
Today my point giving power is exhausted.
