Red Pierrot
Talicada nyseus
Lycaenidae family.

Yesterday visited Lalbagh and found quite a few subjects. On the way back found this beauty on the under a big tree and few attempts captured perched dry shoot very low to ground where I have to be bent keeping camera almost on the leaf litter (background). There are no greens in this image..only showing the dry form of the earth.

Hello Nagaraj,
Very nice macro of this Red Pierrot in good sharpness and natural colours. Pleasing blurred background. Excellent choice of composition.

I keep running into this butterfly quite often, Nagraj.
I'm impressed with the way you have obtained a very crisp image with those camera settings, and that too without the benefit of a tripod.
Wonderful colours in this well composed shot.

Red Pierrot is a wonderful butterfly and ou have captured fine.
The insect is in decent focus and stand out well from the BG.

Nevertheless it's a fine photo.
