[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This my 2300th and last picture on TN. Good bye, friends!!

Everes lacturnus, Oriental Short Tail Blue, is found from India and Sri Lanka to Malaysia, east to southern China, Korea and Japan, and south through Thailand, Malaya, Singapore, Sumatra, Borneo, Sulawesi and most of the smaller islands west of the Wallace Line, down to the north coast of Australia.
On the upper surface of the wings the male is violet-blue, with blackish borders which vary in width according to location and subspecies. The female is almost entirely dull earthy brown, except for the orange lunules and black spots at the tornus of the hindwings. The short tail is present in both sexes, but is often lost after a few days of activity.
The underside is pale silvery-grey, with a bright reddish-orange blotch at the hindwing tornus, and a series of dark grey marginal and submarginal dashes.

Hi Ram,the quality of the pic is very poor,but no problem,this is a grea scoop! A very rare guest of TN,not easy to take with the open wings,the colors are excellents while the sharpness isn't the best. Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ram,
It's a pity you're going away, but most probably you had the reasons to decide this way. I'd like to say big thanks for your contribution on TrekNature. About this photo, I agree with Luciano that the quality isn't the best, but I wish you all the very best for your future endeavours. Good luck, good bye!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
