When your son brings home a…

My son rushed back home from play a few evenings back carefully pinching a butterfly in his hands. The butterfly seemed unhurt and I had to oblige him with a photoshoot. We carefully laid the butterfly in our light box with a few sugar crystals to keep it occupied. I quickly took the camera out and got to work.

Turns out it was a pea blue butter fly – Lampides boeticus. It’s a pretty little butterfly, especially when you look at the upper part of its wings (it’s bluish in collar – that’s what gives the butterfly its name). Unfortunately, it never opened up and I could not get a shot. It posed for a couple of minutes before flying away.
