Tailless Line Blue,
Prosotas dubiosa,
Lycaenidae family.

With my friends I went to Omkar hills on the outskirts of Bangalore, its a mini forest. Everything was wet and fresh because of the overnight rain, we found few interesting subjects. Then I found two of these species on the ground mud puddling and surprisingly one came to settle down on my floaters but I wanted to capture on natural perch so drove it then this one came back again to settle on my foot. At one time there was one on my left and other on my right foot and my friends captured them and finally I manged to capture this one (on my foot) by bending and holding my camera in my hand. Hope you don't mind the human presence here, I had no choice.

Hello Nagaraj,
As you have focused well on the Tailless Line Blue with good sharpness, the OOF human presence is less of a problem. The natural colours and composition add to the appeal of this image.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Nagaraj,

Very interesting capture of this little beauty my friend, good sharpness but with a shallow depth of field, well exposed and very nice colours, great stuff Nagaraj and well done,
Best regards,


Great shot of this butterfly, but a different background would have been better.

Hi Nagaraj,
Good detail and colours. Great POV and sharpness.
Nicely composed and good exposure. Very beautiful macro shot of this butterfly;

Funny how creatures adapt to humans in some places and not others. That is what truly amazes me about India. One legwith insect and another to shoot. Cool.

Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening,
Best Regards,

Hello Nagaraj,
Very cute visitor on your foot. I'm not so amateur in general of including finger or toes, but in this case, reading the note, I must admit that the story too is cute and your presentation is as usual well chosen.
Kind regards
