Its been a long time since I posted here.. I hope everyone is doing good!
And as usual, I plead ignorance about butterflies and their IDs; I learnt a few names in the past only through my friends here, on TN.

Thanks for stopping by!!

You have returned here after years, Goldy; hearty welcome!!
I think this butterfly you have captured recently is a Silverline.
The focus has gone slightly soft on the head and antennae.
Otherwise is is a lovely, colourful image.
Don't go away again and keep posting!

Hi Goldy,welcome back with this beautiful butterfly. It's a Cigaritis vulcanus, the common silverline, a species of lycaenid or blue butterfly found in Asia. It's a pity that the pic isn't the best talking about the sharpness,maybe you are going too close and the result is blurred,correct exposure and bright colors. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Goldy,
Nice to see a post from you once again, hope all is well with you these days.
Truly a gorgeous butterfly with a mixture of contrasting colors and intricate markings. The focus is a tad bit soft in some areas especially the head, yet its lovely features can still be observed and enjoyed by butterfly fans such as I.

Ciao Goodyear, my old friend, a great return on TN, beautiful macro of fantastic butterfly, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
