Malabar Common Hedge Blue, Male.
Acrytolepis puspa felderi
Lycaenidae family

Yesterday (Sunday) went with my friends for butterfly walk in a reserved forest here. Found so many species but got only few of them. One of the species I got is this beauty (first time) which was very active in good weather conditions with brilliant sunlight. It was visiting these small flowers and was chasing with camera hand held. After many attempts go this one good frame. hope you like this beauty.

hello Nagaraj,
This butterfly has special spots on the wings looking a little bit chaotic:-). makes it interesting. Fine composition and subtle colours and of course a Lycaenid-species!
Kind regards

Hi Nagaraj
very lovely butterfly seen in good composition. The slight ascending branch where it perched add wonderful attraction to the eyes. The details are splendid and you always did a good job here.

Hello Nagaraj,
It's exciting to know that in some parts of the world these beautiful little butterflies are still quite active. We have about two inches of snow on the ground right now, so our insects will be gone for some time.
Nicely framed and displaying very good detail and natural color. I really like the horizontal composition in this instance.

Namaskar Nagaraj

Tight depth of focus as always and a beautiful composition to present this Lycaenidae. The little tilt affects the overall result a wee bit..


Hi Nagraj,
Fantastic macro capture of this beautiful Blue with excellent composition, POV, DOF, sharp details, and natural colors. I like the blurry plain BG as well. Very well done, my friend. Thanks and have a nice day!
P.S. I don't know why there're no point rating signs below, so I have to award you two points with a smiley this way.

Hi Nagaraj,
This is beautiful specie, I am seeing for the first time, good capture,splendid background, good details.Its rather difficult to do photography during such walks, but you have managed well.TFS
