Himalyan Blue Imperial

Ticherra acte acte


Spotted on this kitchen apron spread to dry. This house is located at the edge of a thick forest mixed with bamboos.


It was a vey cold day, the winter sun playing hide and seek. I happened to see this pretty butterfly come and sit on this kitchen apron perhaps to bask - at my in-laws' place where I was invited for a lunch - before it quickly flying away I managed to take 2-3 quick photos which I am sharing here.
