Common Bushbrown, Mycalesis perseus, is a species of satyrid butterfly found in South Asia and Southeast Asia.

Upperside brown - Forewing with a transverse discal indistinct darker line and a single yellow -ringed ocellus of varying size. Hindwing with one minute, white-pupilled black ocellus in and 2 in. Underside grayish brown with darker basal area. Forewing with 4 small white pupilled black ocelli and Hindwing with a submarginal row of 7 small, yellow-ringed, white -pupilled ocelli. Wingspan 38 -55 mm.

There is a distinct colouration difference in the wet and dry season. In the wet season it is more darker in colour and in the dry season it is light brown.

Normally inhabits the damp and shady bamboo jungles. Very difficult to detect because of its habit of resting among the dead leaves with its cryptically coloured closed wings.

It is found throughout India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, China and Taiwan.

Kingdom: Animalia

I've come to expect this fine quality in your images Sumon.

What a great angle. It makes the butterfly look larger than life. Stunning details as always and perfect exposure. The details/definition are remarkable considering you subject was a dark color.

Hello Sumon a wonderfuull shot with lots of detail and well composed great pov excellent shot tfs rgds Necip

Remarkable capture of this fantastic butterfly, Sumon. I think I have seen this species for the first time. I am deeply impressed with your quest and successful presentation of unique species from Bhubaneswar which seems to be rich in wild life.
The image is truly razor sharp and colourful. I love those beautifully arranged eye-spots on the butterfly's wings.
This picture must go to my favourites.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Sumon,
A very effective point of view, resulting in this beautiful composition!
Patterns are captured so well, in true colours and superb details...
Well done on the macro work, the background nicely enhances the subject!
