Hello Ram,
What a pretty butterfly this one is! Lovely pov and nice soft colors. Looks great against the blue background.
Regards Sigi

Magnificent combination of dark blue and bright orange. Sharpness is excellent.
The background is a bit busy. Maybe cropping the extreme right of the photo an the top bud would move the flower+butterfly a more off-centre.

hallo Ram

Hello Ram,
I do not know how you find this amazing colorful butterfly species....The blue colors of this specie are superb.

Hello Ram
beautiful butterfly captured in a superb environment, the sunlight on the flower gives this photo very special effect
Have a good night

Hello Ram

With the POV you choose and the way you framed,
and with the great contrast of the color tones
of the butterfly over its flower, are contributing
to the beauty of this photo, TFS
