This small butrerfly was resting on a big leaf near my house.
Thanks to Aniruddha Dhamorikar for the ID.
Ypthima baldus newboldi (Common 5-Ring)
This common butterfly can be found in secondary growth and open grassy areas around the fringes of the nature reserves. Often in flight, even on overcast days, the Common 5-Ring is believed to feed on Gramineae (grasses).
The typical yellow-ringed black ocelli is a distinguishing feature of the various species in the Ypthima family. The pair of rings at the tornus of the hindwing is counted as one. The total number of the rings counted thus give this species its common name.
The butterfly has a rather weak flight and generally stays close to the ground.

Hi Foozi,

I see you are now trying new shots. This is really great. The butterfly is perfectly taken. Good clarity and POV.


Hello Foozi,

Excellet shot, great focus and very good colours. Keep Shooting!

Thanks for Sharing!

i had been pointing out about the over saturation in your images, here its very evident. i had seen this butterfly and here it looks unnatural in colors. you should take care of that. the image is very fine otherwise. did a workshop reducing the saturation, hope you don't mind. tfs.
