Hi Mr. Ram,
Sorry I am unable to help with the exact ID. I searched the net for 1/2 an hour but couldn't get an exact match. It may be some sort of admiral or some sort of Satyridae. But still not sure. Now I am quiting cause some other official works. Shall try later. Anyway a nicely composed shot over the ferns. Excellent details and POV. Thanks a lot for sharing.

this is clearly a species of the genus
- Aulocera, probably Aulocera swaha (I will check later)
- Nymphalidae, Satyrinae
Best wishes, Peter

I like the way the lighting shows up the wing contours of this Brown butterfly (Satyridae), which also lends to a blue iridescence near the body. This is pretty sharp and set in a fine composition with pleasing neutral BG.
I can't be more precise with the ID, I'm afraid.
TFS and for your kind words regarding my 250th post!
I hope you settling down well in your new home.

Sir, very nice and interesting shot. The view is beautiful and also the shot. I think they somehow belong to skipper family. Not sure. Ganesh

This is "common satyr", wonderful capture and colors and very few pics are available i think on
net. Peter is right its also known as "Aulocera swaha"!

This is a very beautiful composition. Interesting butterfly in a nice pose but it is a little soft probably due to the light that seems rather bright and difficult. These days I often shade the subject and change the settings of the camera accordingly but this is obviously not alway possible.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla
