Hi friends in TL,

This is another dark glass blue captured on a coat-button. Thanks Bayram for the ID.

Dark glass blue is a very small blue with a wingspan of 15-20 mm. The males are a uniform dark blue above and narrowly marked by black bands on the outer margins of both wings. The upper sides of the female are brown though some specimens have some blue at the base of both wings. The wings are somewhat transparent and allow markings of the lower side to show through when viewed from above.

In both sexes, the underside ground color is a light brown, with some variation in wet and dry season forms. There are numerous small black markings on both wings - the ones on the forewings are always larger and often darker as well. A spot is always present in the cell on the underside of the forewing. The median bands of spots on the hind wing are uniformly arranged in an arc.


Thanks for viewing

HI Jusni
I am always in awe at photos of butterflies, how delicate they look perched on the flowers. A really nice sharp shot nicely presented.

An ok macro here Jusni, not with quite the usual crisp sharp detail and fine resulution you bring - maybe it's so small! Did you have to crop this shot?

Compositionally and in terms of metering it's superb as always.


Salam Jusin

Nice macro with good POV and colors.
Great management of background, with such close aperture I've expect better DOF. TFS.


Hi my dear friend Jusni, another wonderful capture of this L'il pretty Dark grass blue butterfly with excellent clarity and nice composition from a nice POV.
TFS. Have a nice weekend MF!

Hello Jusni.

Another so nice image. Great macro shot and something I love to see, gentle, "dreamy" background. So lovable!

Have a nice weekend!
