Hello friends in TN.

This one is from my 2010 archive.
The Great Eggfly (Hypolimnas bolina), also called the Blue Moon Butterfly in New Zealand or Common Eggfly,is a species of nymphalid butterfly.
The upper side of the wings of the female is a brownish black and does not have any spots like those of the male. The edges bear white markings which are similar to those of the Common Indian Crow.


Thanks for viewing!
