Thanks James. I can get butterflies in my hand, when it appears in my garden. This butterfly was all day sitting on the flowers of Catharanthus roseus. I offered sweetened water, and she came in my hand.


Thanks, bay.



Thanks Reza.

Should be Junonia evarete, identical and "not" distinguishable from Junonia genoveva, unless you an see the underside of the antennae. So, in your case it is Junonia evarete. There were and still are a lot of discussions about these Junonia and there is still a lot of research to do. Until then I think we are safe with Junonia evarete, but only in THIS case. Many others you will find will include the risk of being mis-ided.

Beauty !
