[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Eagris sabius sabius (Gray 1832) at the top of the Black River Gorges in Mauritius. This female typically rests with its wings outstretched. The E. sabius is widely distributed, but this subspecies is restricted to the Mascarines. It is not uncommon here.

Hello Geoffrey,
A new butterfly for me and quite attractive. The ends of the back wings appear to have a bit of under curl to them. I like it's bronze almost copper color and splotched markings. Sharply focused and perfectly exposed.
