[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I shot this rather large butterfly belonging to Common Emigrant family on the 16th of this month, using my 70-300mm lens on a clear sunny day. This specimen stood out among the rest of the normally yellow and greenish yellow Common Emigrants by virtue of those special brown dabs on its nether wings. I was mystified about its true ID until I chanced upon a picture of it on an Indian nature image sharing site today. To my great pleasure, I came to know that this butterfly is known as Common Emigrant in Catilla Form. I confirmed this ID from other sources too on the internet.
So here it is for your pleasure!
