[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dark Grass Blue
Zizeeria karsandra
Lycaenidae family.

Feel free to correct the ID, if necessary.

Today outing in Lalbagh was not fruitful, could not find many species though the weather was overcast. Found this blue perched on a grass blade beautifully but while trying to set up tripod it flew and rested here. Hand held, I captured this one, could not go close enough. Grass blues look beautifully only when they are fresh. hope you like this one.

hello Sir,
Now I am at Shillong, and the net connection is very slow, all our communication system is failed. I am using my note pad with my son's cell phone as a modem.
It is simply a good capture with all the good qualities.
You are correct Dark Grass Blue are good looking when it is a fresh specimen.
I think it is a fresh and you captured it nicely.
