Guess this is Peridae

I am torn apart!

Extremely restless butterfly

I could not identify this butterfly even after a lot of googling and wikiing. I had a very tough time taking this picture as this butterfly will not perch for more than 2 seconds.

Update: The butterfly is called Blue Bottle Butterfly . Thank you Harsha for the help in identifying.

Dark Cerulean (Jamides bochus) - Lycaenidae family

This butterfly is called Dark Cerulean (Jamides bochus) and belongs to the Lycaenidae family.
Great! How did I figure that out?
Step 1: I searched wikipedia for The List of Butterflies of Karnataka
Step 2: Clicked on the links of the five main families one-by-one and reached Lycaenidae
Step 3: In the Gallery section found a picture resembling the picture I clicked. Got to know that its binomial name is Jamides bochus.
Step 4: I Searched wikipedia for Jamides bochus and finally got the details about this Dark Cerulean butterfy.

I wish google had a search feature where I could input the picture that I clicked and get the butterfly details with a single click.
