These rapid flyers were hard to capture and I got a bunch of shots with dodgy focus.

two superb images that you captured Ayush... i like the way its wings change colour when they are open....petersmile
Ayush Basu: This was a stunning butterfly Peter, I have not seen a more impressive and vibrant species of butterfly in person.
the focus looks fine to me... wonderful blue color...
Ayush Basu: Thank you Larry, I have some more shots lined up.

You did really well, Ayush - look at those eyes and legs and antennae!
Ayush Basu: I was going for the eyes and the proboscis, along with the wings, Lisl. I have some more lined up.

It's very beautiful. The focus looks fine especially on the second image.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the encouraging comment, Alan
This looks very dramatic Ayush.
Ayush Basu: So is the butterfly effect, Chad!

The colour is so vivid.
Ayush Basu: One of the most vibrant butterflies I have seen in person, LC
Well the one your showing us is excellent Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I was trying to pre focus on the flower and wait for the butterfly to land on it, Brian. Somewhat testing.
These two came out beautifully Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark. Have a great weekend, Janet
I have never seen such a beautiful butterfly. I like the pose you captured in the first shot where you see the profile and the wing.
Ayush Basu: This is for me too, the most vibrant butterfly I have seen in person, Mary. Have a great weekend

What wonderful pictures Ayush, you have captured them brilliantly!
Ayush Basu: I hope I could be more consistent in this subject Anne, you're only seeing 2 nominally okay photos from a bunch of really bad ones smile But thank you for the kind remark.
Difficult or not, this is a great shot, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Pleased to read your comment, Tom. Have a great weekend
They are so beautiful Ayush! No focus problem to me.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark. Have a great weekend, Richard
Looks pretty good to me. Butterflies are wonderful and all too rare in the UK these days
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark. Have a great weekend, Bill
The iridescent turquoise is just exquisite, Ayush. Mother Nature doing her thing...and strutting her stuff!!!
Ayush Basu: I am all ready to be awed and wooed by Mother Nature, Ginnie. Thank you very much

When butterflies don't stop fluttering by, they become difficult to shoot.
Ayush Basu: It was a cycle of burning off the sugar from flowers and loading up again, Louis

I love the way you have captured the iridescence of the wings smile
