[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Melanitis leda, in our garden last week. Common in the Mascarines, N. Australia and and Africa. When like this with its wings closed it mimics a dead leaf. Caterpillars feed on a variety of grasses including sugarcane.

Hello Geoffrey,
The Melanitis Leda is truly a well camouflaged butterfly which looks very similar to a dead leaf. Nice close-up shot, but the focus seems to be off a bit. I did a WS to see if I could bring back some detail. I also slightly adjusted the color. Hope you don't mind.
