[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shot these mating Red Pierrot in my school garden this afternoon.

Talicada nyseus, the red Pierrot, is a small but striking butterfly found in the Indian sub-continent and South-East Asia belonging to the lycaenids, or blues family. The red Pierrots, often found perching on the Kalanchoe plant, are usually noticed due to their striking patterns and colors.

What a beautiful scene Ram. Also the are really beautiful with that combination of orange, black and white color!
Thank you for sharing it.

Hello Ram

Beautiful environmental photo of this lovers with fine POV and
the way they are framed in the image, and with beautiful light, TFS


Hello Ram,
Magnificent specie with those red markings on the wings. The shape is like the Polyommatus Icarus here in Europe, but totally different colors.
Nice capture.

Hello Sir,

A lovely image of the mating couple. The red Pierrots with their bright orange, white & black patterns are the cutest butterflies and you have captured the details wonderfully well. This must be one of the rarest photo of mating butterflies.

Thanks for sharing this lovely couple.

Warm Regards,
