Hello Arun,
Very good photo of this interesting Butterfly,Common Rose, new species for me, TFS!

Hallo Arun
The bright red plumpish body of this Common Rose is beautifully seen against the green backdrop and is really a pleasure to look at. I tried to capture one of them in a butterfly house in the Cape Province without any luck, as they had so much energy and did not stop moving their wings at any time. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Arun,
