[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I did some looking up. It was a small butterfly. It came close to Common Blue going by the shape of its eyes and sriped antenna. It could also be Mazarine blue but I am not sure as the specie is not common to India.
I would be thankful if someone could correct me on this

Hello Mukesh..
Good photo and adorable butterfly but I also dont know specie it.. Thanks for sharing..

Hi Mukesh,

You had a small (but very small) problem with the focus, however the result is very good. Also, it's a very interesting photo because the insect's uncommon pose. You've archieve very good colors and a managed very well the light. It seems me that the prettiest is the composition, is very good!

A wee bit more DOF is all I can ask more . Excellent composition !! The position of the Butterfly on the grass twig creates the delicate balance !!

Good composition with nice lighting and fine background. This looks like 'Plains Cupid' common butterfly in India, I have no idea where you captured this, you better mention it if you are looking for ID. tfs.

Hi Mukesh,

Fine composition, usually people tend to take close up of butterflies to show details, but I personally like such compositions, which can show their habitat in full.
