Oriental Plains Cupid, dry season form
Chilades pandava pandava.
Lycaenidae family.
During Sunday's butterfly walk saw many species of butterflies but unable to capture good images...only this one, a plains cupid, dry season form, gave me some chance then the lighting was not all that good...may be next time.

Hello Mr.Nagaraj,
Beautiful picture of this Cupid.Very nice colour and light.Details are excellent too.Like its POV.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice time,

I too shot this butterfly recently in its dry season form, Nagraj. There is a drastic change in the colour and patterns on the wings and you have captured it well here.

Hello Nagaraj,
Not being too much present lately, I missed this shot. Without any doubt a Nagaraj-picture with the typical Lycaenidae and the fine earth-tints. Sometimes the lighting is not the best, we all have to deal with this problem, but it didn't affect too much your shot.
Take care
