Byblia ilithyia Drury, 1773.
Nymphalidae family.

Yesterday (Sunday) went with few friends to a reserve forest in Bangalore for butterfly walk. Found few species and this one is special as am seeing this for the first time. Could not set up tripod and took this hand held for a decent image. Again, wonder why its called Joker, may be it looks like a painted face of a Joker. Hope you like this one.

Hello Nagaraj,
Very striking butterfly this Joker! Really well shown despite the lack of tripod. Sharpness is excellent, the colours most subtle and pleasing. Great shot, indeed.
Kind regards

Hello Nagaraj,
What a beauty......Excellent colors and focus. I have never seen this specie...Superb colors and details.

Yes, I also wonder why such a beautiful butterfly is named 'Joker', Nagraj.
Brilliant capture from dorsal perspective. The details and colours are first rate on the open wings.
