Hello Ram,
What a well composed image of this attractive Common Mormon Butterfly. Tac sharp focus with just enough wing blur to show evidence of their fluttering motion. You have filled the entire frame with color and detail. The exposure is perfect with no hot spots. Excellent DOF and rich natural looking colors. A real beauty Ram!!
