[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
i found this Common Snow Flat butterfly (Tagiades japetus atticus) in the Chintamani Kar Bird Sanctuary. it was my third encounter with this type of butterfly. which implies, either it is not so common in the place where i live, or, i missed :)

it is a skipper butterfly from the family 'Hesperiidae'.

the Common Snow Flat is fond of sunny spots beneath the jungle canopy and can often be seen basking with wings opened flat. if disturbed, the butterfly zips very quickly away and hides under a leaf, usually with its wings still opened flat.
