Hi Goutham!
How lucky to be there in the midst of plenty of butterflies to choose from!
As usual, this is a good capture. I find its head and antennae particularly attractive.
And thanks for looking at my last butterfly.

A real good picture , Love the details shown in this picture.

Very good macro shot!
It's a Lycaenidae.
Nice colours and BG!

Another nice shot, Goutham, but I think it looks a little overexposed as posted. I hope you don't mind, but I've done a quick workshop on it.
Regards, Nigel.

Hello Goutham,
great shot, beautiful colours, composition, and contrast.

Hello Goutham.

Excellent image, very good details and colors.

Hi Goutham,
Just found this picture after doing a search for "Jamides" in TN. The composition and background are excellent. Although the picture shows the insect in good detail, it seems to me a little over-exposed. It might be possible to reduce the glare and get more contrast in the wing markings with Photoshop. To this end I've made a workshop.
As to the identification of the butterfly, I believe it is actually the Long Tailed Blue Lampides boeticus rather than a Jamides species.
