Oriental Grass Jewel
Freyeria putli, Kollar, 1844.
Lycaenidae family.

The smallest butterfly in India...
Yesterday visited Lalbagh and found mist around and dew formation...this little jewel decked with some dew drops when I found it..difficult one as its very tiny and have to go very close..fortunately early morning sun light through mist made it possible. Hope you like this jewel.
