Common Lime Butterfly, Papilio demoleus.
Very common butterfly and seen here in TN many times but can not resit to capture and posting again.
Yesterday the weather was good in lalbagh but found few species, this beauty was waiting for the Sun to warmup and I too waited to capture this with early morning soft sunlight directly.

Hi Nagaraj v,
Excellent macro shot. ..
lovely butterfly on a beautiful blurry BG, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness.
Best wishes,

Hi Nagaraj,
Wonderful capture with incredible clearness. I truly love your composition, although it may be even more effective with slightly tighter crop on the top. Just a personal thought. Colors, sharpness and DoF are exceptional each, as the image in one also. Congrats and tfs.
Have a great Christmas (if you celebrate it), best regards, László

simple and so beautiful, greetings Ori

Hello Nagraj.
This shot is lovely with fine details and beautifully rendered tone. This common lime differs a bit than ours but with same character all around.
