That's a really pretty butterfly. It looks like a Common Jezabel (Delius Eucharis). I am not up on my butterflies from India. It's very over exposed from being back lit. Be aware of the direction you are shooting. Into the sun is never good. An image from the other direction may have had direct sunlight on the butterfly instead of a shadow. Light can be your friend or your enemy.
Have a very fine day.

Hi Samiran,

Beautiful picture of butterly with fine details. However, the background is a bit disturbing because of over exposure.

Thank you for sharing.

Hello Samiran,
Very beautiful and colorful butterfly. Impressive sharpness and nice composition. Yes, background is overexposed, but it's a natural shot. No problem for me. Cheers,
