Hello Vijeesh,
It seems to me that you reposted this picture. It is of course less dark as before. An interesting species of Skipper on a lovely purple flower too. May be the position of plant and butterfly is a little bit too centred, a little shift towards the left would have may be improved the composition a little bit.
Kind regards

Hi Vijeesh,

Very nice capture of this beautiful Butterfly my friend, lovely colourful composition with good effect, i have to agree with Anne perhaps a crop off the left would improve the composition, but as presented a splendid picture indeed,
Best regards,
