[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shot this rather batty specimen in the school today. It had perched on the shoulder of a gardener and was somewhat feeble. I gently shifted it from his shirt to a leaf and then took this picture.

Junonia orithya is a nymphalid butterfly with many subspecies occurring from Africa, through southern and south-eastern Asia, and in Australia. In India, its common English name is the blue pansy, but in southern Africa it is known as the eyed pansy as the name blue pansy refers to Junonia oenone. In Australia, this butterfly is known as the blue argus, but this name also is used for the Aricia anteros in Europe.

H Ram,

The leave is framing well the insect. The point of view is showing the details of the Blue Pansy butterfly. The light is giving good colors rendering. Have a nice day.
