Madagascar Black-Eye (Leptomyrina phidias)

Madagascar Black-Eye (Leptomyrina phidias) is a butterfly in the Lycaenidae family. It is found on Madagascar and Réunion. The habitat consists of rocky areas with rupicolous vegetation (growing on rocks) and anthropogenic environments.

I met this beauty in Andasibe Mantadia region. It was nice sunny morning with few showers here and there. After one such shower sun started shining and on the narrow rocky path, by side, I noticed this settling on fern for basking. It let me approach near and take a few pictures, but used to take off and settle near by again on fern.
