A plain tiger monarch during it's usual nectar seeking low flight
This maybe the most common butterfly in Pakistan, frequently seen in low close-to-ground flight, moving from flower to flower for nectar in grass (a common pollinator of these) in lawns, gardens, forests, hilly areas and even deserts.
It acts as a model for many edible mimics practicing Batesian mimicry, since it contains nauseating alkaloids and other mechanisms that make it inedible for most predators. It's careless low flight being due to the same reason!
