[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Getting a bit cold here in north India. Found this Common Baron sunning itself on a potted plant of my house terrace.

Euthalia aconthea, the common baron, often called simply baron, is a medium-sized nymphalid butterfly native to India and Southeast Asia. It flies with stiff wing beats and often glides. The wing is not flapped very far below the horizontal.

Range

Throughout peninsular India, except in the desert tracts, and the higher ranges of the Himalayas; Assam; Burma; Tenasserim, extending to the peninsula, and Sumatra.

Hello Ram,
What a lucky meeting with this beautifully marked butterfly. Wings fully extended and soaking in the warm rays of the sun gave you a wonderful pose. I love the light brownish colored wings filled with fine detail and perfectly exposed. A real eye catcher!!
