Wings are mostly orange with broad triangular black patch at the top ends. Series of differently sized white patches on the black edge.
We were driving from Bangalore to Munnar (India) and had stopped enroute for refreshments. When one of the parked cars drove away I stepped into the sun only to see this butterfly flying on its side (Second photo). I never knew butterflies could be run over by a car! I picked up the little guy and it was ALIVE! It got a good grip on my finger but could not hold on to a branch I had put it on. I left it on the ground, under a bushy plant...hopefully away from harm's way (definitely away from automobiles.)
