Yellow Orange tip
Ixias pyrene
Pieridae family

My last post was White Orange Tip which I captured earlier Sunday. I never dreamed that last Sunday will found Yellow Orange Tip in Lalbagh. Here it is but as it goes they don't open the wings completely and here the background was not to my liking nevertheless its good find for me. Could not set up my tripod and handheld waited for sometime for it to open its wings maximum. The exposure was difficult too, for the species sake posting this one, hope you will enjoy like W O tip.

Your find too is a 'bombshell', Nagraj.
Beautiful species with its wings open to show its orange tip.
BG really doesn't count here.

Hello Sir,
A superb open wing picture of Yellow Orange tip.
You are correct, that, it is very difficult to capture open wings shot.
