Dakhan Bamboo Treebrown
lethe europa europa, Fabricius, 1775.
Satyrinae family..

Yesterday during out butterfly walk, one of my friend spotted this below trees on the ground...first I could not spot this one, it was so well camouflaged, it was so confident and did not fly away even when I crawled very close with my camera...captured as it is and where it is, wish one day I will get a good image of this beauty with clear background.
The patterns of these browns are always interesting to see and colors too..hope you like, not my usual kind of image.

Hello Nagaraj,
You are correct about their amazing ability to stay camouflaged. This little beauty blends in so well with the bare earth that it would be hard to see unless it fluttered it's wings a bit.
Love the beautiful intricate markings and patterns in it's wings. Excellent focus showing much detail. I actually like this BG since it lets us see how well camouflaged it becomes against the leaves and bare soil. Well done!!

Hello Nagraj,
An excellent capture,lovely colours and great details.
