[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another butterfly picture from my archive going back to 2006. The subject was captured at Shimla at an altitude of 6000 plus feet. I have never come across this species after that, even though I have had several encounters with its close cousin Purple Sapphire, again in the hills.
Not much info is available about this species and I have this one line note from Wikipedia:

The Sorrel Sapphire (Heliophorus sena) is a small butterfly found in India that belongs to the Lycaenids or Blues family.


Thanks for looking.
