This is a first to me...it's the same size as a Red Pierrot, but its mauve and black on the inside, of which I couldn't get a shot.

I do hope that helps you identify this one.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

P.S.: I used RAW to click this one, too.
I think I'm getting a hang of this RAW thing!

Thanks so much HP, for identifying this butterfly!

It is Lime Blue, Chilades laius, I guess, Goldy.
Excellent fresh capture of this member of the Blues family. The picture is well composed and the markings on the wings are well captured.
Well done and TFS.

I think Ram is right about the ID, Goldy, though my expertise on butterflies is limited to Europe. The body shape indicates a female.
A fine capture of the Lime Blue taken from a nice lateral POV that shows its closed-wing features with nice clarity against the dark BG in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and kind regards,

Stunning macro capture of this Chilades butterfly taken from an excellent POV.
Your composition have worked very well with the background! TFS and have a nice day/WE Bro Goldy!


Buena luz y colores, aunque es pobre desenfoque hacen
que tu trabajo pierda por ello muchos enteros.

Hello Goldy,
Very nice photo of this butterfly in beautiful colours, but not in total sharpness. Great DOF and composition.

Hola Goldy

Una mariposa no muy común. Yo no la había visto antes, pero una imagen excelente, perfecta nitidez y composición.

Un saludo de Antonio

The large white area of the wings draws me quickly to the flora upon its perch. Looks like some sort of succulent or cactus...very good perch!:-)

Hello Goldy,
You have captured this beauty very well my friend. The composition, colours and point of view are all superb. Thank you for sharing your fine work.

Hi Goldy,
A lovely capture of this beautiful Common Hedge Blue (Acytolepis puspa) and also in its host plant Rosa sp. Good composition with good details. It seems the HS10 is a nice camera. Yesterday I ran out of greens so put the ID on the Discussions section. Perhaps you have not seen it.It is also the 1st time on TN from India by you. Congrats. Thanks a lot for sharing.

How I missed this beautiful species, lovely one. First time I am seeing this one. tfs.

Hi Goldy,

The leaves are helping to frame the butterfly. The close-up pont of view is showing the details and colors of the Common Hedge Blue butterfly on the leave. The late morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
