Catachrysops strabo,
Lycaenidae family.

Last Sunday visited Lalbagh and it was good outing, saw and photographed few species and one of them is this beautiful which looks like fresh specimen. The beauty was perched very low where could not use tripod and handheld I captured few images.
I still don't understand how the common names evolved...forget-me-not, sure I won't forget this beauty.

Hello Nagarj,
For me new that there is a butterfly called Forget-me-not. A beautiful species which surely you will not forget. Very fine tints as usual, a closer approach than normally.
Thanks a lot

Hello Nagaraj,
Wow, what a splendid species.....Remarkable photo with exceptional clarity and details. This is a very nice species of butterfly with lovely grey-white colors. Perfect composition taken from a excellent POV with good light and best clarity. The contrast against the dark environment looks great.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Nagaraj,beautiful macro of this rare lycaena in a classic pose,fine details,perfect colors and magnificent wings design too.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

I too had shot this species some years ago and someone had identified it for me as a 'Forget-Me-Not' from Blues family. The identification of these little ones is quite confusing.
You have captured this one in an excellent pose. The image is quite sharp with lots of details that must help one in identifying this species as distinctly different from the others in the Blues family.

Beautiful photo Nagaraj! Interesting butterfly, excellent composition, nice clear BG, wonderful soft lighting and very good sharpness.

beautiful image with wonderful background. nicely presented. tfs.

Hello Nagaraj,
I agree with you about the name, since that is the name of a particular flower here in the States.
A wonderful shot of this pretty little butterfly with it's tiny tails trailing behind. Tac sharp focus and an attractive blurred BG which keeps you focused on the intended subject. I also really like the diagonal perch. Great capture Nagaraj!!

Hello Nagaraj
such a simple but lovely presentation. As usual the beauty of the soft green background is such a strong attraction. The details of the butterfly is splendid.
Simply attractive catch.


Hello Nagraj

Beautiful composition of this butterfly, with fine POV, being framed diagonally
it gives dynamism to the image, beautiful light and color tones, TFS
