Today, I dig into my archives for this shot 'coz I got so irate chasing one of its cousins yesterday...without any success..
So I thought I had enough of them in my archive.

"The Large- or Common Grass Yellow (Eurema hecabe) is a small pierid butterfly species found in Asia. 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 therm otherwise refers to the entire genus Eurema."

Hello Goldy !
I'm happy to be your neighbor today ! :-) And I really like this old picture from your archives ! It's a wonderful species, with bright colors, and you managed to get a real close capture. We see many details, and I like the cheerful colors as well as the tight composition, the POV, the pose of the butterfly. Very well done !

Hello Goldy,
A fine close-up of a Grass Yellow taken ffrom a great POV to show its features while resting with fine colours and good clarity. A fine image that would be eeven better if it were not so closely cropped IMHO!
Thanks and all the best,

bonjour Goldy

Hi Goldy,

The leaves are framing well framed the insect. The close-up view is showing the details and colors of the Common Grass Yellow butterfly. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
