Cirrochroa thais thais ( Fabricius) NYMPHALIDAE

Common butterfly in the evergreen forests and on the plateau. Endemic to south Indian hills, above 2500m in the Western Ghats, Fond of moist/damp patches deep inside the jungles. Abundant during February-may in south India. Both sexes visit flowers and male occasionally water.

While i was on an Assignment, in a resort, in Coorg, i saw this fellow sitting and resting on Stones. I chased in many places but just warming up itself, by sitting on Stones. This is my first record of this beautiful Butterfly.

Hello Satish,
thank you for posting this beautiful picture of a Cirrochroa species. Focus, sharpness and colours are excellent.
I'm particularly interested in Cirrochroa and studied the species of Sulawesi. There, I discovered a new species, which I named Cirrochroa recondita. Therefore, I like this picture very much showing the wing pattern of C. thais very sharp and clear.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Satish,
What a lovely image of this very beautiful butterfly.
Wonderful light, warm colors and details on the wongs.
Sharpness, composition and lighting are excellent, but pity aperture of F8 was'nt enough to get the right wings of the butterfly in sharp focus also.
Nevertheless a real beauty to look at.
Thanks for sharing and the good note.
Best wishes,

Hi satish,
