The Tawny Coster (Acraea terpsicore) is a small leathery winged butterfly which is common in grassland and scrub habitats. It belongs to the Nymphalidae or brush-footed butterfly family. It has a weak fluttery flight. It is avoided by most insect predators. This species and the Yellow Coster Acraea issoria are the only two Indian representatives of the predominantly African tribe Acraeini.

Ciao Nitin, great macro of fantastic butterfly, wonderful bright colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Nitin,
This is a classic TC picture as there butterflies are known sit on the edges and open their wings. I liked the diagonal composition and personally i would have left a little more space on the top.

Hello Nitin
Amazing butterfly and beautiful photo with good composition, fantastic colours and impressive sharpness!

Hallo Nitin
This is super special, with lovely colours and markings captured on the wings of this beautiful butterfly. I also like the centralized, almost full framed composition and the point of view.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards.
