Pale Grass Blue
Pseudozizeeria maha
Lycaenidae family

Summer showers bring down the temperature to certain extent and grass started to grow all over again. With new grass the insects start appearing to our benefit, to enjoy and capture. One of such insect, a common butterfly perched on a thin grass blade with new grass as background. Its very pleasing to watch these cute butterflies through viewfinder.
I was away from home for few days and could not comments on many images.

Hi Nagaraj,
nice and nice indeed. Very cleverly presented in simplicity that is so stunning. i like the green background, and the curving grass and not forgetting the silvery butterfly.
Very beautiful composition in perfect score for me.


Hola nagaraj

Vaya buena imagen de esta mariposo en la cuerda floja, haciendo equilibrismo.

Como es posible que se sujeten asi, o es que la hoja de la planta esta vista de lado y es mas ancha ????.

Realmente una toma bien lograda con ese fondo verde.

Un saludo Antonio

Hello Nagaraj,
Though not 100% sharp, the artistry,technical quality and contrasting Bokeh green BG make this a superb portrait of a Pale Grass Blue and the composition on the curved blade of grass is a fine touch.
Thanks and all the best,
