The Common Silverline is found in open natural vegetation and is exclusive to the Indian Subcontinent.

Brilliant silver lines enclosed in black bordered red bands makes your first encounter with the Silverline quite unforgettable. Its reluctance to fly away also allows you to get really close to this butterfly. However its flight is extremely swift and once it takes off it is very difficult to follow its course.

For more detailed notes please see Mr. Sumon's Post here.

Thank you for your votes.

Hi Haraprasan,

Superb shot of this lovely butterfly. You got it perfectly. Wonderful colors, excellent sharpness, and a nice pose. The green leaves are a marvelous background showing him off so well.


Wow ... I wish this was common in our country ... its such a beautiful butterfly.
The colours and patterns are fantastic.
A nicely composed shot with excellent sharpness.
Great work.
(ps I remember asking you whether you like to be called Haraprasan or Nayak and you said Nayak was ok, but I see everyone calls you Haraprasan.I don't want to seem to formal and I'm not sure which is the name you usually use.
Could you enlighten me further ?
