This butterfly is usually very difficult to take, as it tends to fly away when pp comes. But this guy was VERY co-operative that day....and was willing to be a model for me! He stayed put for almost 30 mins, though he flew off once, he came back to the next leaf!

The settings are FZ10, F8, ISO 50 and is common to all.
For right and left pic, its with the 6T and Sigma close up, and 1/60 and 1/80 respectively. The center top and bottom one are with 6T only, 1/60. All are in Apeture priority mode except the left one.



The Lesser Grass Blue is rather common and can sometimes be abundant in Singapore. It is a small butterfly and is usually found flying close to the ground in open sunlit grassy patches. The male is dull purplish blue above whilst the female is brown. The underside is grey with a series of small dark spots on the fore- and hindwings.
The butterfly is more often observed outside the nature reserves, in suburban areas where the host plant, Mimosa pudica (Touch-Me-Not/Sensitive Plant) can be found growing as a weed. As it is so small, it is often overlooked as it flutters feebly amongst the roadside weeds, searching out small flowers as it feeds.

Appreciate any comments!

Here is not a butterfly but a moth. But I liked the shape of the wings and the leaf...double V!
