[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a closeup of a beautiful butterfly who was so concentrated on sucking nectar from a flower that she was not aware of my big black camera pointing to her nearer and nearer until I could see her eyes clearly. This lady (I thought it was she) is named the Redbase Jezebel in English. The Redbase Jezebel is a medium sized butterfly of the Family Pieridae, that is, the Yellows and Whites. The species is found in parts of South Asia and Southeast Asia.
The most conspicuous markings are the bright deep red color patch at the base of the underside hind wings and several yellow streaks above the red base.
