Blue on Green and Red wall print

10 Years and Under, Highly Commended 2021

Vidyun was photographing leaves in his school playground when he spied this resting cycad blue butterfly. He moved up close to capture its pattern – a short, white-tipped tail on each hindwing.

This small species – also known as a plains cupid – is often found in gardens and parks. Unlike most of its close relatives, whose larvae feed on a diversity of plants, cycad blue caterpillars feed almost exclusively on cycads, one of the world’s oldest plant groups.
