[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In a strange occurrence this year, hundreds of Plains Cupid butterflies belonging to the family of Blues have come out together on my school campus. They were having a riot around a garden plant today morning, flying constantly and pushing and nudging each other and not allowing anyone to settle down for more than a few seconds. I somehow managed a few shots of them with my 40mm macro lens and here is one of them.

Chilades pandava, the plains Cupid or cycad blue, is a species of lycaenid butterfly found in India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, United Arab Emirates, Indochina, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Java, Sumatra and the Philippines. They are among the few butterflies that breed on plants of the cycad class.
