Hello friends in TL.

This male gram blue was spotted on this blade of grass.

Male upperside: pale purplish suffused with a bluish shade, apparent only in certain lights. Fore wing: a slender black anticiliary line edged on the inner side narrowly with fuscous dark brown, broader at apex than at the tornal angle. Hind wing: a subterminal black spot in interspace 1 and another similar spot in interspace 2, the two spots subequal in size, edged on the outer side by a white thread and on the inner side with ochraceous, more prominent in the spot in interspace 2; a slender anticiliary black line with an inner narrow margin of diffuse fuscous brown. Cilia of both fore and hind wings pale; tail at apex of vein 2 of the hind wing black tipped with white.
mud-puddling in Kawal Wildlife Sanctuary, India.

Underside : silver-grey, in some with a pale yellowish, in others with a faint brown tint. Fore and hind wings: each with the following brown spots edged slenderly on either side with white:a transverse elongate spot on the discocellulars; a transverse discal series of spots straight on the fore, bisinuate on the hind wing, on the latter wing capped near the costa by a prominent while-encircled round black spot; an inner and an outer subterminal transverse series of spots, of which the inner subterminal series on the hind wing is lunular, the outer rounded, the white edging to both series being also lunular; both wings have very slender anticiliary black lines, and the hind wing in addition a transverse curved subbasal series of generally three often four white-encircled spots of which the spot nearest the costa is prominent and block, the others brown. Antennae, head, thorax and abdomen dark brown, paler on the last, the shafts of the antennae speckled with white, the thorax with a little purplish pubescence; beneath: the palpi, thorax and abdomen white.


Thanks for viewing!

Hi Jusni,

A very pleasant nature shot, the details and colors of the butterfly are well captured. Your aperture is well chosen to ensure sharpness on the entire butterfly, while the soft dark background provides both separation and contrast.

Best regards,

My Best Wishes

Excellent macro shot very sharp details, well composed

Perfect exposure on this fellow Jusni , the placement and crop are ideal i wouldn't change a thing here except perhaps to clone out the green leaf behind but why bother it is part of the setting after all , the light is terrific and your subject is sharp as a tack i reckon , another beauty from Malaysia thanks for sharing ,
