[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On a cold February morning, two Peacock Pansy butterflies appeared on my school campus. It was a bit of a surprise since the spring was still pretty too far in the future. Anyway, I made the best of the opportunity and took their pictures against different settings. Here is this one with the butterfly sunning itself on pebbles with its wings open.

The Peacock Pansy (Junonia almana) is a species of nymphalid butterfly found in South Asia. It exists in two distinct adult forms which differ chiefly in the patterns on the underside of the wings; the dry-season form has few markings, while the wet-season form has additional eye-spots and lines.

Hallo Ram
The warm colours of the butterfly and the light-brown of the rocks it is resting on compliments each other beautifully. The Peacock Pansy is a lovely butterfly with its markings very prominently seen. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
