Some Kind of Blue

By ChiliMan
Ok…so I was gonna get a shot of the leaves in V2…when I saw the little fella in V1 Smile

I haven’t ID’ed it yet but I assume it’s some sort of blue. And talk about a fantastic subject. Didn’t budge even when I went really close! After the shot I slowly went to touch it…and then it flew off Grin

Alrighty…gonna upload and run ‘cos about to collapse on the keyboard. Catch you all tomorrow.


Andrew

EDIT: The butterfly is a Pale Grass Blue...Zizeeria maha serica. Thanks so much for the ID, Mike Grin

Understand about one. But the leaves in two conjure up abstract images. Hope your OK. Peter.

A smashing capture, it looks very like a Pale grass blue - Zizeeria maha serica, to me. Was only discovered in Singapore in the early 2000"s but is now well established.
