Tailless Lineblue
Prosotas dubiosa
lycaenidae family

I captured this small blue in lalbagh few weeks back. It was perched on a leaf of a hedge and somehow I could manage to use the tripod for this image. Usually they are very active with less tolerance but this specimen was quiet for a long time. Of many species of Lineblues this one does not sport a tail and that makes bit easy to ID otherwise one has to count the numbers of lines on the underside to Id these lineblues.

Hello Mr.Nagraj,
As a amateur photographer I just can say it is truly looking splendid against eye soothing green colour in BG.POV is also good to me.Natural colour and presentation are the main attraction of it.
Thanks for sharing your experiment,
Kind regards and respect,

Hello Nagaraj,
Another of your cute Lycaenidae, this time in a green environment. Nice to have had the opportunity to use your tripod, with these nervous little butterflies it is not obvious.
Kinds regards
