[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Psyche (Leptosia nina) is a small butterfly of the family Pieridae (the Sulphurs, Yellows and whites) and is found in India. The upper forewing has a black spot on a mainly white background. The flight is weak and erratic and the body of the butterfly bobs up and down as it beats its wings. They fly low over the grass and the butterfly rarely leaves the ground level.

Hi Haraprasan
What a great shot of this lovely butterfly!
Details and colors are perfect!

The quality of your shots is so stunning, HP!
And the best part is you're so consistent!

'Psyche' is a good name for this distinguished looking butterfly, HP.
The specimen despite a little damage to the wings looks elegant on that little yellow flower.
Very good POV, DOF and details.

Very beautiful photo in excellent sharp details, a superb composition and great contrasting colours. A pity there's a little bit noise in the splendid coloured BG.
