Hello Subhayan,
It is female Papilio polytes (Common Mormon).
Please have a look at my posting at,
- Nirmal

Nice shot. The colours look beautiful.


I like your DOF and BG in the pic. The POV, sharpness and detail shown are also good and make a quality posting.

Hi Subhyan
Nice capture of the Common Mormon.The flitting wings makes it quite difficult to capture this beautiful b-fly in sharp focus.Yet you have managed well. The overal light elements makes the b-fly stand out quite well.
TFS & Cheers

Namaste Subhayan,

Very good shot, I love it, reminded of my childhood trying to catch one of this by hand and they always on this same flower in Laos and Thailand. I love butterfly of all kinds. Anyway. This is beuatiful and lovely composition and natural colors.
