Common Grass Yellow
Eurema hecabe simulata Moore
Pieridae family
wingspan: 40-50 mm

As name suggest this is very common butterfly one can see but very tough to capture one as most of the times it settles under the leaf or inside the bush. But the color, yellow, beautiful. This one captured in my backyard when it cooperated with me for some time only to be disturbed by a damselfly.

Hello Nagraj,
A fine classic capture of a Common Grass Yellow taken from a great POV with fine sharpness and colours against a pleasing green natural blurred BG.
Thankd and all the best,

Dear Nagaraj!

It is a similar picture to the former one, as beautiful and as pleasant to look at. Again, the two main colours are complementary and suit very well. A fine picture that, maybe, could be a little bit brighter. But this is very personal.

Kind regards
