[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This butt was sitting and sunning itself on a cycas plant, early in the morning.
Formed a nice contrast against the green.
Would love comments and also the knowledgeable friends here to identify this common butterfly.
Is this from the grass blue family?

Hello Pushpinder and welcome among TN members!
I do not know the species name of this species, but I am sure this is a member of family Lycaenidae.
Best regards from Poland!

Hello Pushpinder,
Nirmal is right. You can see them here. http://indiabutterflies.tripod.com/moths/index.html (couresy ram sir). nice shot. Ganesh

Hello Pushpinder,
It's a great shot my friend.
The fact is I just don't have the darn time lately to do this as I would like to. So I will not post for awhile..
Time for a vacation :)

Hi Pushpinder,
a very nice close-up shot, with good sharpness and details.
The colours are lovley and the POV are also nice.
And the butterfly standout well from the BG.
About the composition; I prefer some more space down,
maybe a portrait mode would improved it.
Well done.

This is one of my fav from you. Brilliant shot and compo.
