[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
The Tawny Coster (Acraea terpsicore) is a small leathery winged butterfly which is common in grassland and scrub habitats. It belongs to the Nymphalidae or brush-footed butterfly family. It has a weak fluttery flight. It is avoided by most insect predators. This species and the Yellow Coster Acraea vesta are the only two Indian representatives of the predominantly African sub-family Acraeinae.
The butterfly is found in India and Sri Lanka. It is common all the year round and is equally at home in forest clearings and open country. Though mainly seen at low elevations it has been recorded at heights of up to 7000 feet in south India and sometimes in the North.

on An Erly Morning in Omkar hills, i came across this Beautiful Butterfly. There are plenty of them.I usually do not care taking a picture of them. But this was something lovely in the morning light and tempted me to take picture and here it is!
