Lord of the Rings
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
Here is another butterfly shot at Thoppur. This must be one of the browns or one of the Rings. I am yet to determine the exact specie name. If any of you know, let me know. I could not get a parallel view of the butterfly because of the landscape near the plant from which the butterfly is sipping nectar. But I could still get a decent DOF to cover the entire butterfly.

your picture shows the butterfly
- Melanitis leda
- family: Nymphalidae / Subfamily: Satyrinae
The complex and fine wing pattern is presented very well and with pretty good sharpness. Splendid colours. I would like to include your picture in my next THEME on Satyrinae. Is that o.k.?
Best wishes, Peter
