Hello Ram,
Wow!! What a gorgeous specimen you have presented to us. The colors are stunning to view, especially it's sky blue rear wings with the orange eye spots. Nicely focused and framed perfectly. Excellent exposure and I really like the attractive orange flower it is visiting.

Hi Ram,

That's a fantastic picture with excellent sharpness and composing. The Blue Pansy in contrast with the orange flower looks so great.

Sascha ;O)
