Nice showing both side of this Small Tortoiseshell. Markings and colors are completely different. These two pictures give a perspective. Very well done.

This is a wonderful presentation of two very sharp and beautiful shots of the Indian Tortoiseshell (Aglais cashmirensis)!! It's different from our Tortoiseshell! It looks like a very fresh speciment in beautiful colours and the details are very sharp in both. Very well done! and interesting
species!! (Useful site: -http://www.nerdybirders.com/html/butterflies/butterflies.html)

Dirt road or not, this is an excellent capture of an Indian Small Tortoiseshell, a new species for me. Ulla drew my attention to this fine shot of yours. It differs mainly from the European by the grey border outside the orange on both wings. The underside is also a little more streaked.
Technical quality is excellent and I am grateful that you shared this one on TN.
Best wishes, Ivan

This is one of my favorite butterfly, but in my country, this species are very rare and I didn't see one by naked eyes in the field so far. :-)
Beautiful colours and details, OOF is also great.

Once in a while I appreciate this type of presentation to come along and break the monotony. In your case a well balance pair of shots with neither dominating. And using the technique as a teaching tool as well. Professional quality to this shot Ram. Fine my friend!

You've made a great job presenting us this great arrangement of this tortoiseshell.
I like so much the vivid colours seen on its inner side, you caught it with a very good light and exposure settings.
And the other view complements so well the appearance of the insect.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
