[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This female specimen of the Indian Fritillary I shot in the school garden was in a badly damaged shape which I have tried to avoid showing by choosing this selective perspective.

The Indian Fritillary (Argynnis hyperbius) is a butterfly of the Nymphalid or brush-footed butterfly family.


The Himalayas, in the outer ranges from Campbellpur in the Punjab to Sikkim; Oudh; Agra; Manbhum in Bengal; Assam, the Khasi Hills; Upper Burma; extending to China and Formosa; Sumatra; Java. Can also be found in southern Japan.

Hello Ram,
A photo full of bright colours, so the butterfly is nicely camouflaged. Excellent sharpness, details and composition.
