Oriental Grass Jewel
Freyeria putli.
The smallest butterfly found in India.
Presenting the species that I posted last time but in b&w. We see lots of colors images not much b&w. I found this in Lalbagh on one cool morning and did some closeups when it flew away to perch here and was cleaning is antennae, found the setting interesting with morning sun light on top portion of the image. Removed color to make it simple, hope you appreciate this image.

Hi Nagaraj,a brave experiment but sincerly i don't like butterflies pics in black and white,a strange way to show is this tiny grass jewel..ehhee..but the details are really beautiful! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Ciao Nagaraj, may be better with colors, original choice, great view of lovely corner, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Great B&W photo Nagaraj! Excellent composition and impressive sharpness!

Hello Nagraj

The black and white conversion and the photo being an environmental
for this butterfly, are giving an wonderful effect for the photo, TFS
