[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I was lucky to find a female Indian Fritillary in my school garden after 2 years. Last I shot it was in May of 2013. It was a big and healthy specimen, very intent on taking nourishment from the yellow cosmos flowers. It did not mind if I took the camera too close to it and only shifted from one flower to another. I took lots of shots but only with its wings closed. It opened its large wings only reluctantly but not wide enough to give me a full view. Here is one and I have many more to share later.

The Indian Fritillary (Argynnis hyperbius) is a butterfly of the Nymphalid or brush-footed butterfly family.


The Himalayas, in the outer ranges from Campbellpur in the Punjab to Sikkim; 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.

Hello Ram,
The Indian Fritillary is certainly an attractive butterfly as we can clearly see from your photo. Perfectly photographed in exceptional detail and displaying beautiful colors. The closed wing markings and colors are gorgeous, I hope you will soon show us what it looks like with opened wings also. Superb work!!

wonderful shot with outstanding colors of the butterfly and the flower.
