Indian Lesser Grass Blue,
Zizina otis incida.
Lycaenidae family.

Last Sunday visited Lalbagh hoping some dew formation will be there but it's not..lighting was good though. Found this tiny blue but it always preferred to perch low near the ground level. Here it was perched on a leaf of small plant and had to handheld to capture this one through the grass etc., got an interesting image with out of focus leaf..thought you may like this one...and to wish a happy new year 2014.

Hi Nagaraj,magnificent decentralized composition for the New Year postcard,great idea and beautiful solution to show us this very small lycaeneide,i like it! All the best to you too and thanks,Luciano

Isn't this SPECTACULAR!!!!!!! wow artistry and photo exceptional!!

Hallo Nagaraj
Thanks for sharing such an artistically taken image of this Zizina otis incida as part of your New Years wish. The composition has really isolated this small butterfly giving it a vulnerable feel.
Best regards.

Hi Nagaraj.
Warmest wishes a Happy New Year. I like a very creative approach to composition of the picture. Small charming butterfly on a leaf on the right bottom corner and the most impressive smooth canvas as a BG are looked amazingly. TFS and compliments.

Hi nagaraj,

Wonderful composition with the butterfly, great B/G
I like very much the pov and the dof, excellent focus.
perfect light and amazing colors, Tfs.
my best regards.

Hi Nagraj,

A lovely shot as a new year's greeting to all. Thank you.

Excellent POV, looking through the vegetation with some slight blur of the foreground. Give a feeling of depth. Beautiful but natural colors.

Hello Nagaraj
such an artistic shot. Like the way you compose to give an exciting view.
Lively and creative presentation.


You got a nice collection of butterfly's and moths Mr!
I like this composition very much, where you have given a lot
of the frame to the dimmed background and the bug just the lower
right corner.
TFS, Ronny

Hi Nagaraj,
Very interesting composition with the small b-fly in the bottom right corner, and the oof leave looks like a swirl... Perfect lights and a great experimental image overall. Congratulations!
Best regards, László
