Brown Butterfly

Behold the Brown Butterfly upon my wall.
Its the Junonia lemonias, also known as the Lemon Pansy.

This is a common nymphalid butterfly found in gardens and wooded areas but isn't it rare to find it resting for a long while like this. And I caught it with my cam'm immediately! :D

You can see the big eye-spots as well as black and lemon-yellow spots and lines on the upperside of the wings. The underside is a dull brown, with a number of wavy lines and spots in varying shades of brown and black. 

Aren't the eye-spots like they've been carefully and beautifully painted onto its wings?

For more such Brown eye-candy check out the Thursday Challenge for fun and learning!

Brown Butterfly Fly my way so I may hold you for at least a day. I believe in the catch and release program, unle it wants to be captured for longer than a day; I'd do that for this fine thing1
