[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a very rare species which is called "Euthalia niepelti" and can't find its English name. I just came across it twice, once on the ground at the side of a bamboo wood, another time at a valley forest.
The most conspicuous marking is a blue curve band along the edge of the hindwings when its wings are open. There's no information in the Wikipedia.

Hi John,a very very rare specie that i never seen before,a good pic,a bit noised,maybe you crop a lot the original pic,good exposure in a difficult diagonal light.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hi John...well composed frame. colour, Shadow of this butterfly and sharpness is good.

nice presentation. TFS


Ciao John. TFS the old rare one. Good detaiols amazing light.


Hi John,
A rare capture for sure, but in my opinion cropped too heavily, the photo is pixelated, the wings are too closed to the edge of the frame and the shadows are a bit too deep. Not your best shot, but full credit for sharing a - probably - new, rare species on TN. Thanks.
Best regards, László
