usually quite hard to avoid these little fellas. The common
posy is abundant here. They always seem to flit around
close to the ground, and are very wary. The slightest movements
scare them off!
The male common posy has dark brown forewings above,
but the hindwings are a bright shimmering blue. The
females are pale brown on top with a blueish tornal
( where the tails are ) area. They are often seen sunbathing
in the late afternoon. They also like to drink the sweet sap of
the young leea indica shoots.
