[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I stumbled upon this butterfly in my garden and i was worried to take a photograph of a moving insect, it was not at one place..in a jiffy it flew around and settled for few seconds............I have captured this shot to my best efforts. This may not be that clear but i managed a good view of this beauty!

I went through websites on butterflies and it was very confusing to exactly figure this species out, i would appreciate if someone helps me out.

Hi Prasad,
a very large butterfly you have here. The angle is so wide that it gives a very majestic look to it.
Well composed with excellent angle.


Hi Prasad,
Thanks for looking at my pictures. I have done a little work on your image of agamemnon to improve the lighting and sharpness. I hope you find it useful. Best wishes.
