Dakhan Tailed Jay
Graphium agamemnon menides.
Papilionidae family.

On wednesday I was returning home from butterfly walk and half way was walking towards my busstop and found next to traffic signal these two mating pair of Tailed Jay on compound wall at well past noon time. Unmindful of traffic I set up my tripod to capture this rarely seen mating pair. Fortunately got dark background and cropped close to avoid some distractions.
Hope you like this image.

Hello Nagaraj,
Beautiful couple indeed taken in special circumstances:-). Perfect sharpness, well chosen framing and fine color-combination. Did you rotate the picture? It would also work in horizontal presentation.
Kind regards
