Fantastic capture of beautiful butterfly,
very sharp image, great colours and good details.
Thanks for sharing!
You sure made up with this posting.
Sorry, as far as the ID is concerned. The closest I could get is what you already have.
I think you are correct in suspecting it to be a Crimson tip - Colotis danae annae (some sources have it Scarlet tip - Colotis danae danae).
You do not need to be overly concerned about your BG. Although it does show a bit of grass & other vegetation it is mostly neutral and non-disturbing. The brilliant colour of the butterfly does enough to ensure the eye stay focused on the subject. The details are nice and sharp and the exposure is great.
Good work and TFS.
this is a good one Goutham,
it has a nice composition, the pov is good and the colours are nice, and the light is very nice. very good job.

This is a pretty butterfly. Well done on the management of the white. Good POV with perfect DoF. Crisp, clear and sharp. Congrats!
This is a very nice capture.
Excellent colours and exposure,very good composition.
It stands out well against the dark background.
It does look like a relative of the Orange tip.
A great shot.

BG is perfect, and so is the butterfly.
Perfect exposure. Could not be done better.
It seems to pay to get up early.
Excellent, perfectly describing
and charming contribution.
Thanks, and best regards,

A truly remarkable capture, Goutham. Don't under-rate your BG; it actually adds punch to the sharp and crisp colours of the butterfly.

A very "punchy" high-contrast image that leaps out of the monitor. Excellent sharpness, too! Very nice post, Goutham.

Excellent post with this amazingly coloured butterfly. He's a beauty.
Background is fine in this case. Exposure of the butterfly is well handled. Composition is good but I feel you could have moved it off-centre just a bit. Good sharp details. Well done, a very interesting post.
