[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Chocolate pansy, I beg your pardon for the wrong identity earlier.Thanks friend for bringing this to me.

The Chocolate Pansy or Chocolate Soldier (Junonia iphita) is a butterfly found in Asia.

It is about 5-6 cm in wingspan and the female can be told apart from the male by white markings on the oblique line on the underside of the hind wing. The wavy lines on the underside of the wings vary from wet to dry season forms.

Individuals maintain a territory and are usually found close to the ground level and often bask in the sun.

This was taken at Lalbagh botanical gardens,Bangalore on our regular macro outings. Hope you like it, thanks for dropping in.
