|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|One doesn't see this Indian Fritillary frequently. This is my second encounter with it in the last 3 years. I shot it yesterday on my school campus. It was somewhat restless and reluctant to open its wings. I captured this shot with wings partially open through sheer luck.|
Argynnis hyperbius, the Indian fritillary, is a butterfly of the Nymphalid or brush-footed butterfly family.
The Himalayas, in the outer ranges from Campbellpur in the Punjab to Sikhim; Oudh; Agra; Manbhum in Bengal; Assam, the Khasi Hills; Upper Burma; extending to China and Formosa; Sumatra; Java. Can also be found in southern Japan. [Archaic place names date this information back to British rule in India. -Ram]

Your patience paid off nicely even though the butterfly wanted to play a little hard to get with you. A beautiful specimen and in fine focus. I like the framing and you managed the exposure very well in what appears to be full sun. Colors are well saturated yet natural and I like the blurred BG.

Excellent image of Indian fritillary in a very nice composition, despite the difficulties the colours are very nice as the pattern of wings as well, good sharoness and details.
