Blue Pansy

Junonia orithya

Description:

Medium sized butterfly, I wasn't able to properly view the dorsal side though.

Habitat:

Saw this in a sub-forest, sub-grassland elevated area in the morning. We were on a tropical island, where it was mostly humid.

Notes:

I had fun chasing this butterfly over the place. Thanks to @DanielePralong for the ID!
