[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Spotted Pierrot ( Tarucus callinara ) is a commonly found small butterfly of the Lycaenids or Blues family.

Thanks to Mr.Nagaraj for the correct identification.

The white at the edge of the wings instead of black and black marking which are more horizontal in nature than mere spots can be good ways to distinguish it from the common pierrot.

This was taken on a grassy mountain slope in the late evening hours just before sunset and hence the little yellow tinge on the normally white wings.

Beautiful capture of this pierrot despite the difficult light and no tripod.The details are very good,correct exposure for the best white and very nice composition too.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Lovely Image ! The details and colors are good . Personally i would prefer a non square format and less space behind the subject and more in the front:-) Hope you dont mind :-)
