|This cute little butterfly from the family of Blues is now flying around in my school garden. I captured it today morning.|
(Red Pierrot basking and displaying its upper markings)
The butterfly has a wing span of 3 to 3.5 cm. The upper side of its wings are black except for a large orange portion of the lower edge of the hind wing.
On the underside, the fore-wing is white with black spots more toward the margin. The hind wing is very striking, it is white with black spots toward the base and the margin has a wide band of orange with white spots. There is a lot of variation found in the blacks spots on the hind wings.

I love all the colours in this image. The Red Pierrot feeding on the (looks like an Impatient flower) is well composed with fine details. A lovely capture!

I really enjoyed viewing this little Red Pierrot butterfly of yours. I've been so busy after returning from my trip that I haven't had much time to critique.
What I find so interesting is how completely different the inside wings appear compared to their outside. I love the dark chocolate upper inside wing in contrast to the bright orange lower portion. A real beauty which displays sharp detail and just the right exposure.
