[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Description : The Plumbeous Silverline is found in open natural vegetation and is exclusive to the Indian Subcontinent.
Brilliant silver lines enclosed in black bordered red bands make my first encounter with the Silverline quite unforgettable. Its reluctance to fly away also allows you to get really close to this butterfly. However its flight is extremely swift and once it takes off it is very difficult to follow its course.
Plumbeous Silverline (Spindasis schistacea) is a little different with Common Silverline (Spindasis vulcanus) Common Silverline has a reddish band on its body but Plumbeous Silverline has black band.
Order: Lepidoptera
Family: Lycaenidae
Genus: Spindasis
Species: S. schistacea

Hello Praveen!
A very good shot of this lovely butterfly in good sharpness and details. White color on feathers is slightly over-exposed; other than that i see no problem with your shot. Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,

  • Great
