[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Though winter chill has already set in here in north India, days are still bright and sunny. Most insects have now gone into hibernation, so it was a pleasant surprise for me this morning to see some Plain Tigers and one Peacock Pansy chasing each other around on my school campus. I took this picture of Peacock Pansy when it settled for a moment on leaves.

Junonia almana, the peacock pansy, is a species of nymphalid butterfly found in South Asia. It exists in two distinct adult forms, which differ chiefly in the patterns on the underside of the wings; the dry-season form has few markings, while the wet-season form has additional eyespots and lines.

Hello Ram,
Perhaps this may be the last look you will get of this beautiful butterfly until next year. You certainly made the best of it's encounter by capturing this lovely image for us. The Peacock Pansy is quite attractive as we can see, you did a fine job of photographing this particular specimen. Focus is razor sharp and colors are bright and natural. I like the shape of it's wings, reminds me somewhat of our Comma and Question Mark butterflies which are more prone to be out in cooler weather.

Hello Ram,
A very striking species of your country. Like you we still can see some butterflies aroud here, very unusual for November. But winter is coming soon and the end of butterfly-season will be real.
Kind regards
