[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Gram Blue ((Euchrysops cnejus)is a Lycaenid butterfly commonly found in India.

The early morning winter sunlight filtering through the canopy gives a very different hue and luster to this common gram blue as compared to a picture in strong direct daylight.

This picture was taken handheld with a telephoto lens at max zoom.
