1st welcome to TN Saju, certainly a spectacular butterfly. The focus of the hind winglooks a little soft but the rest is very well seen.
It would be good to ave some information about where you found it and its life cycle, here on TN informative notes are almost as inportant as the image have a look around at some of the better images to get an idea of what works well.
I have had a quick look on the web and I think it is a Crimson Rose Swallowtail (Pachliopta hector) Now i know it does not show the tails but that is not unusual as they are there to distract attacking birds, but the colours of the rest of it are identical, hope this is of use in updating your note.

It would have been better to crop a bit the left side and to have more space on the right side, focus a bit soft.

Nice first picture Saju.
Good colours and details.
Agree with Philip about the crop.
Well done.
Welcome to TN.

Hi SAju, and welcome on TN
The red tells me, and other birds and animals, that this guy most probably tastes horrible. At least, he looks beautiful! Can'td have both - lol.

Beautiful Monarch Shot Saju.
Good colours and details.
