[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Loxura atymnus atymnus Stoll, 1780 Sahyadri Yamfly
Lycaenidae Family

This is not a common butterfly, mostly typically found in thick forests. With open wings one can see a beautiful Orange-Brown colour combination, of course not so common for a Lycaenidae to sit with open wings.

Picture taken under forest canopy conditions with only partial sunlit illumination of this beauty.

Himanshu Ranade,
A lovely image but quite dark on the top.
So, I've W/S-ed it.
Hope you don't mind.
Greetings from Mario in Canada.
