Red Pierrot | Talicada nyseus

DSC_1482.jpg

Belonging to the family of Lycaenidae, this is a small butterfly that can be seen in the home gardens and shrub lands all over the country. But still, this was the one and only Red Pierrot I have seen around my home.

And turns out that roaming around in the morning doesn’t mean nothing as I am always able to click at least one new bugger out there.
