Another Beautiful Flutterer

It feels so good to make a post after along time! This Yellow Orange-Tip(Ixias pyrene cingalensis) was photographed my good buddy Shan, who told me I could post it here.  I have news for you guys, very soon I'll have a new camera(nothing fancy though) and be back to posting all the interesting critters I see around! :-)

  5. Hi Amila, nice to meet you again. Nice photo... looks somewhat like 'common grass yellow' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurema_hecabe) which is very common here.
    And congratulations in advance for your new camera!
