Oriental Plains Cupid
Chilades pandava pandava, Horsfield, 1829.
Lycaenidae family.

Butterflies are hard to find in this summer waiting for monsoon. This fresh specimen was found in Lalbagh last month and captured with good Sunlight and background. It was hot at that time still this Cupid resting on this flower. There was a hedge between us and so could not use the tripod.
