[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Chocolate Pansy or Chocolate Soldier (Junonia iphita) is a butterfly found in Asia.
It is about 56 cm (2.02.4 in) in wingspan and the female can be told apart from the male by white markings on the oblique line on the underside of the hind wing. The wavy lines on the underside of the wings vary from wet to dry season forms.
Individuals maintain a territory and are usually found close to the ground level and often bask in the sun.
