Pale Grass Blue
Pseudozizeeria maha
Lycaenidae family

Captured in my backyard, these blues don't open their wings (here) completely, only around 70% and very difficult to approach. But this one was quiet allowing me to capture its beautiful pale blue color.
Hope you will enjoy.

Hallo Nagaraj,
a beautiful picture of the Pale Grass Blue, good sharpness and very beautiful colours, excellent point of view and nice composition
Best regards

Hallo Nagaraj
What a delightful photograph with lots of beautiful colours and details on the butterfly’s wings. I often see butterflies with pale blue wings but this one is quite different as it has the dark colours on the tips which draw the attention to it. The contrast between the green as backdrop and the blue of the butterfly is very eye-catching. Thanks for sharing a delightful image, as the Pale Grass Blue is a beautiful butterfly and a 1st for me. Best regards.

Hello Nagaraj,
Great to see one of your blue species with the wings open, even if not completely. The aperture was right to get the necessary DOF with excellent sharpness and yet the BG is nicely OOF. Nice colours and composition too.
Thanks and best regards,

Very beautiful colours and composition and in good quality. Well done.
