The Yamfly (Loxura atymnus fuconius)

I would like to dedicate this picture to my young friend Srikumar (Hotelcalifornia).
This is another beautiful butterfly from my home village Rudrapur, where recently I was visited. I found this beauty perching on a Ribbed Gourd (In Bengali it is known as Jhinga) twig in a shady area, and it is taken with old Fuji prosumer camera in jpeg format after little adjustment with the help of Photoshop CC I am uploded here. Hope you like this one. I don't find this butterfly at Santiniketan.

The Yamfly ( Loxura atymnus fuconius) is a species of lycaenid or blue butterfly found in Asia.
Common Name: Yamfly
Family: Lycaenidae
Subfamily: Lycaeninae
Genus: Loxura
Species: Loxura atymnus fuconius
Wingspan of Adult Butterfly: 35mm
The upperside of both sexes is reddish orange with a neat black apical border on the forewing. The underside is yellowish buff with a somewhat obscure post-discal fascia. The female has its tornal area of the hindwing dark-dusted. The antennae are short and the palpi is unusually long and protruding, a feature easy to pick in close-up pictures. Both sexes have rather long white-tipped hindwing tails.
Wingspan of Adult Butterfly: 35mm
Thank you for viewing and valuable comment

I am simply amazed with the beautifulness of the butterfly and quality of the image. Fantastic subject, 3D-effect is tremendous as well as clearness of the vivid colours, sharpness of the insect and plant and splendid smooth BG. Outstanding job. Bravo.

Hello Samiran,
Exeptional sharp detailed photo in beautiful natural clours. Great DOF and composition. Nice blurry background.

Hallo Samiran
Excellent butterfly photo with nice point of view, great full framed composition and unusual colour just like that of a yam. Focus is good and exposure is spot on. The 2 extra insects in the scenery is a pleasant bonus. A well worthy dedication to Srikumar, a gentleman with a pleasant personality. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Samiran.
A great shot of this beautiful butterfly, nice details sharpness against the background, point of view and composition are also very good, great work. Regards Siggi

It is a rare and uncommon presentation on TN, Mr Nandy.
You have done a great job with your Fuji camera. The image is pin sharp and the details on the wing are marvellous.
We also see another insect on the plant, so this is also a two-in-one presentation.

Hello Samiranda,
An outstanding capture of nice spices with fine details and a beautiful composition taken from a nice PoV.

Hello Samiran,
A butterfly-species with a special wing-shape, an exotic one for us. Picture taken in the wild, this is always a plus. Fine colour-contrast, best sharpness on the wings.
Kind dedication too.

strange and interesting one, TFS Ori
