Pale Grass Blue
Pseudozizeeria maha
Lycaenidae family.

I captured this blue in Oct 2011, just thought of sharing with you. Over night rain left few water drops on the grass blade and this beauty just perched in between and trying to soak the early morning heat from Sun.

Hello Nagraj,
Very beautiful photo of this butterfly with a good sharp focus on the head. Beautiful soft colours and a very good composition. The waterdrops are a big bonus.

hello Nagaraj,
Very poetical picture, butterfly balancing between two waterdrops..lovely tints as usual. Well seen, indeed!

Hello Nagraj

Beautiful soft light and color tones, the butterfly
being framed diagonally in the photo it adds
dynamism to the scenery, TFS


Ciao Nagaraj. Good managmnent of backlight with the wings in movement. Not easy to have so good details. Intrigant drops.
