Satara camp - Nov 2008.

Sorry not the greatest pic, and I do not recall seeing this butterfly (its not a moth I hope!?!), so can someone ID it please :D I was amazed how well it blended/matched with the yellow flower.

@ DB... girl, try to get the shot side-on. :lol:

I am guessing a bit here, but this feels like a Grass Yellow, probably Broad-bordered.

Yes, this is a male broad bordered grass yellow (Eurema brigitta).
