The Common Silverline,
Spindasis vulcanus,
Lycaenidae family.

Yesterday, I visited Omkar hills with my friends and of the many subjects we found was this beautiful Lycaenidae butterfly which looks like fresh specimen and perched quietly on a leaf so that we could use tripod for a portrait. After many years I had come across this beauty and happy to capture with early morning soft sunlight, against dark background.

Hello Nagraj,
splendid image of this butterfly with sharpness and detail super; beautiful and natural colors; a composition very well done!
Thanks for sharing

Hello Nagraj,
attractive presentation of a fragile hairstreak butterfly, a fresh specimen in all its beauty and the slowly moving tails still in perfectly good shape. In front of the well supporting uniformly drab coloured background the butterfly's subtle colours and exquisite markings are to be seen very well. With thanks, and best regards,

Hello Nagaraj,
perfect light and very good sharpness. The composition and background is also attractive. A little more spece below the butterfly would have been advantages - resulting in a more balanced geometry. What do you think?
Beste wishes, Peter

Hi Nagaraj,

I always laugh when I see "Common" as part of a name. There is nothing common looking about this Silverline which you show with great detail. The colors are striking and the wing patterns are beautiful. I love the pose on the leaf and the wonderful green background.
