Hello Haraprasan,
This is a beautiful butterfly that I don't think I've seen before. I like the silvery colour on the backwings and you've captured it in a very nice pose here. It's probably having a drink on those leaves! Nice composition and a good note - I like its Latin name!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
