[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Large Grass Yellow or Common Grass Yellow (Eurema hecabe) is a small pierid butterfly found in Asia and Africa. This butterfly is seen flying close to the ground and is found in open grass and scrub habitats. It is simply known as "the grass yellow" in parts of its range; the general term otherwise refers to the entire genus Eurema.


The Common Grass Yellow exhibits seasonal polyphenism. The lepidopteran has a darker summer morph, triggered by a long day exceeding 13 hours in duration, while the shorter diurnal period of 12 hours or less induces a fairer morph in the post-monsoon period.

Hello Ram,
An awesome shot of this beautiful Common Grass yellow. I like the framing and tac sharp focus. The dark BG really makes the yellow colors and markings on it's wings stand out. You can easily see how it sips nectar with it's long coiled proboscis.
Well done!!

SUPERB focus on this Common grass yellow.The color has come out very well both for the insect and the flower because of the dark back ground.
