[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Striped Pierrot is rarely seen in my part of the world, so I was fortunate to come across one during monsoons this year on my school campus.
Wiki has only this much information on this species:

Tarucus nara, the striped Pierrot, is a small butterfly found in India that belongs to the lycaenids or blues family.

Congratulations Ram, on spotting this rare find on your campus grounds. Not quite as colorful as the Red Pierrot, but still a beautifully marked specimen. Nicely framed while displaying excellent detail and perfect exposure. Not sure if I have ever seen this particular butterfly before. TFS!!
