[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Though I have posted another picture of the same subject earlier, I am posting another one from my shoot of 2013.

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.

Greetings Ram Sir!!
As usual, this shot is stunning in details and composition! What I find interesting is the pebbles since I've never seen this particular butterfly on pebbles! I post on Instagram now, Sir! I do hope to see you there, as well!
Kind regards,

Hello Ram,
The Peacock Butterflies always have such an array of beautiful eye spots, this one is no exception. I love its basic orange coloring edged in tan and completed with a few squiggly black and blue markings. The colorful eye markings are a real bonus to an already very attractive butterfly.
Nicely framed while displaying exceptional detail and just the right amount of exposure. I have seen a few early butterflies out and about, but haven't gotten any shots that I am pleased with as of yet.
