[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took this photo of Common Grass yellow (Eurema hecabe) just before mid-August this year at the college while these grass yellows were flitting over Duranta (Duranta repens) flowers. When this one perched on the flower, I took a number of hasty shots and this one, after a little adjustment, turned out to be quite good so here it is. It is always a matter of great pleasure to identify and post the acceptable shots of these beautiful creatures for friends here.Thanks for watching.

* I am not hundred per cent sure about the ID, if there is ID correction, I would welcome it.

The Large Grass Yellow or Common Grass Yellow (Eurema hecabe) is a small pierid butterfly species found in Asia or Africa. They are found flying close to the ground and are found in open grass and scrub habitats. It is simply known as "the grass yellow" in parts of its range; the general term otherwise refers to the entire genus Eurema.(Wikipedia)

Hi Abid sahab!
Excellent close-up of this Common Grass Yellow from a very nice point of view. Great sharpness and very nice details. Great contrast with the plant in background. Little purple flowers of Duranta and the diaginal position of this yellow butterfly are making it a lovely composition. Thanks for sharing,

Hello Abid,
Outstanding shot of this beautiful Common Grass Yellow. What amazes me is the DOF you managed to obtain with just an f/3.2 aperture. Focus is tack sharp and colors are well saturated yet natural. The butterfly blends in quite well with it's surroundings. A winner in my book!!
