Very interesting! I love it that you captured these "twins" facing the same way, in the same basic pose. Puddling is a great little habit - I've photographed so many this way. :)

Good capture and well sharp,
You captured this puddling behaviour well in a fine composition.
I have never seen Swallowtails do this, including Common Mormons. Here in N. Europe this behaviour tends to be with blues, though other species also get moisture and minerals this way.
Excellent sharpness and lighting for both specimens.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
How wonderful to find these two in identical positions! The black and white is excellent and the details of the butterflies are sharp and clear. It looks very muddy!!!

Wonderful scene you have captured of this couple mud-puddling. Very sharp image with fine focus and perfect use of natural lighting. The sheen/glaze on that muddy/sticky surface also adds a nice effect. I like your POV to portray the scene and the superb composition. Kudos.

Hello Haraprasan !
You have captured a great momet here, I didn't know that some b'flies were doing this 'mud puddling'. Once again, I have learned something from TN ! :-) What I like is that both b'flies look identical, they even have the same pose. Beautiful composition and POV, nice natural colors, maybe the picture is a bit soft but really not a big problem. Very well done !
