[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I shot this Common Baron today morning. It was sprawled on a broad leaf of Lotus plant. Since the subject was quite a few meters away, I had to use 70-300mm lens in macro mode.

The Common Baron (Euthalia aconthea)—often called simply baron—is a medium-sized nymphalid butterfly native to India and Southeast Asia. It flies with stiff wing beats and often glides. The wing is not flapped very far below the horizontal.

Hello Ram,
A beautiful image in great sharpness and good exposure control. I suggest cloning out the twig top left which will further improve the image but very good as is. Best wishes.

Hello Ram,
I can't say I remember ever seeing this cute little butterfly before, a fine specimen. How neat to capture it on this Lotus plant next to the water. I love the earth toned colors and attractive markings it displays. Nicely focused from an attractive low POV makes the composition quite pleasing. Those tiny orange antenna look as if they are illuminated....like headlights:)
