Yet another interesting species I found on the many sandbanks – some locations I found them in groups like here.

It’s very small but beautiful genus in the Lycaenidae family, and should perhaps be easy to identify, but these patterns are so minutely different in each species, that it’s like reading barcode.

This is a female of the species.

Hairstreak (Ziegleria azia)

What’s interesting about this genus is that they can move the appendage like fingers, so when you watch it sucking minerals from the ground – look out for movements in the back!
