[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We have an open bird feed station on the parapet wall of our house terrace where crows, pigeons, bulbuls, mynahs and doves come during the day. The place is quite messy. Today afternoon, I found a pair of Common Baron butterflies and one Chocolate Pansy on the spot. They remained there for quite some, feeding on something from the messy surface with their long green tongues. Here is one of them.

The Common Baron (Euthalia aconthea), often called simply baron, is a medium-sized nymphalid butterfly native to India and Southeast Asia. It flies with stiff wing beats and often glides. The wing is not flapped very far below the horizontal.
