Hello Ram,
Very nice macro of this butterfly, not in total sharpness, but in beautiful light and colours and a fine choice of composition.

Hello Ram

The way this butterfly is posed on the 2 flowers, your POV on it
and the way it is framed on the photo, with the wonderful light and
warm color tones, all of together they gives dynamism to the photo, TFS


Hello Ram!
Now i remember your comments on my shot that Indian Fritillary loves Lantana :). Very good shot in good sharpness and details. Very nice BG, good use of light and a pleasant diagonal framing. Thanks for sharing,
Have a nice day,
Best Regards,
