Hello friends in TN.

Gram Blues are often seen with several other blues, such as Pea Blue, Common Cerulean and Zebra Blues. The male of the Gram Blue is light purple whilst the female is rather heavily black-dusted with the wing bases pale shining blue. The species also possesses a pair of string-like tails.

Thanks for viewing!

You did it almost a year ago Jusni!
Not only a fine capture of a Gram Blue with its wings open, but a fresh specimen taken from the right POV to suit the wing position. The sharpness and natural colours are excellent and the composition on the blade of grass pleasing.
Thanks and best regards,

Why it is called 'Blue' is clearly in view in this picture of Gram Blue, Jusni.
Excellent composition with the blade of grass in diagonal orientation and the butterfly perched on it in very sharp focus. The colour of the open wings, needless to say, is the hallmark of this creature's beauty.
