|I found another beat up butterfly still going around despite the onset of cold weather here in north India. This one is a Common Leopard sunning itself on a hedge-row in my school garden.|
Phalanta phalantha, the common leopard or spotted rustic, is a sun-loving butterfly of the nymphalid or brush-footed butterfly family.
It is widely distributed and abundant; from the tops of hills in Sri Lanka and southern India and up to 3000 m in the Himalayas, as well as the whole of Sub-saharan Africa.

A real eye catcher for this time of the year, reminds me a lot of the fritillaries I see here in Ohio. Lovely markings and bright vivid colors. Focus is sharp and the exposure looks great. A pleasure to view!!
hallo Ram very nice picture to see
beautiful colours and good sharpness i like it
thanks gr lou
Eventhough this specimen came from a war, as it seems, I love this conspicuous species. Being a tropical butterfly I never had the chance to make my own photo, but I don't give up. :-) Spectacular composition, good colors and acceptable sharpness. Pleasant to look at.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
