Hide and Seek with Wildlife: Part 7

I was walking through scrub grasslands near Ajmer, Rajasthan. We were looking for birds and other interesting wildlife. Suddenly I saw a bright colour attract my attention from the ground. I looked down and suddenly the colour disappeared! I was like- What was that?! And then I saw it again! The wonderful camouflaging abilities of wildlife never ceases to amaze me. Here is a difficult quiz for the weekend!

Blue Pansy Butterfly

Blue Pansy (Junonia orithya) is beautiful butterfly from the family Nymphalidae. Adults of this species often are seen in open areas like the scrub land we were walking on, and sitting on bare ground. Blue Pansy butterflies have territories and the females of this species do not have this jhatak blue on it! Here is a close up of the species:
