The undersides are especially attractive too:
Thanks for sharing the Brown Hairstreak. Is the open wing male or female? This looks similar to females of Sapphires. Attaching here a pic. of the Dull Green hairstreak open wing. It was knocked down unconscious by a passing vehicle. Normally you don't see them with open wings.

Can I add my thanks for such an inspiring and beautiful collection of pictures. For me this is another world and I am pleased to have a chance to see it through your pictures. I have looked through the diary from start to finish in one sitting. I don't know how I missed it before. The more I investigate here at UKB the more I enjoy the knowledge and passion that so many people share.
I look forward to your updates and to more extraordinarily wonderful butterflies
Thank you. Peter
No need to thank. I guess we are all nature lovers. it is great to share the joys. I enjoy British butterflies which some of them can be found in Bhutan as well.
Will keep posting pics. after each trips i make.
