Butterfly post No: 100

I have many reasons to rejoice today:

15th of August is Independence Day Of India. We wil be celebrating 60 years of our independence.

"At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new…India discovers herself again."

- Jawaharlal Nehru (on Indian Independence Day, 1947)

This is my 100th Post of Butterfly.It has a been a wonderful time shooting these beautiful butterflies.

This is my 150th post of Treknature.

The species posted here is Lemon Pansy and I have already given details of this species in my earlier posts.

Hello Pankaj,
Congratulations on all counts!
60 years of the Independence of India is worth celebrating but it is not that impressive: it should have been longer!
100 butterfly shots is impressive: I have sent in less than half as many!
150 TN shots is impressive and I congratulate you and hope to see many more from you!
This shot of a Lemon Pansy is also impressive in many ways and is nice to see!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
