This looks similar to Common Sailor found in india , i'm not sure what it is may be Nigel can help.
Good shot and nice to see a butterfly shot from a different angle. I like the colors, WRT composition the space below the butterfly could have been cropped, posted a workshop let me know how is it

Hi Yves
This is a lovely capture of the butterfly.
The composition is good (although, in my humble opinion) you could have cropped some of the 'dead ground' at the bottom and a little bit on the right as well. The colours are rich and pleasing. The DOF (depth of field) is fine with nice details. The BG (back ground) is excellent, well OOF (out of focus) and removed from the subject. The exposure was handled pretty well.
Good work and thanks for sharing.
PS. After I updated my critique I saw that Goutham's came through as well. How's that old saying of 'great minds think alike' as we both, simultaneously addressed the cropping. It is not a big nit and could be easily rectified.

Hi Yves
Great shot.Good colour and sharpness.

Nice composition Yves.
This butterfly looks as if posing for you. Good colour and sharpness.

Goutham has rightly pointed out and executed some improvements in your image.
However, it is a very nice shot overall with a good perspective, DOF and details.

Salut Yves
Great shot and superb dof. Nice & sharp too. Well done,

Salut Yves,
Excellent POV, the blurred back ground lets the butterfly stand out very well. Nice diagonal composition .
Beautifully done.

Hi Yves

A great shot that is well composed, with good depth of colour. A big tick for this shot! :-)

Good diagonal shot though as the others have said a little bit of cropping would have been useful. I think there is too much room on the bottom. Apart from that its OK.

Good picture with nice sharpness and beautifull colors.I like the positioning of the butterfly very much---good work!
