Hello Biswarup,
details later, but this is a species of the
-- genus: Elymnias
-- family: Satyridae
most probably: Elymnias hypermnestra.
Best wishes, Peter

Another beauty from you, Biswarup. I love its colour.
Peter has identified it for you, so you must give us a revised note in detail on this species.
Excellent composition, colours, DOF and sharpness.
Well done and bye.

Interesting looking species Biswarup.
I'd would be good to find one with open wings to see the pattern on top.
Hope you can tell us more about it.

Hello Biswarup,
yes Peter is right. This is a Common palmfly.
This is a very nice butterfly shot. Great sharpness, details and POV. Very nice colours and bg. This is a very nice composition. Thank you for posting.
