Butterfly (Eunica alpais)

The first real excitement for me was seeing this brightly coloured butterfly. I spent quite a long time following it to try and get photos. Sadly it was a lttle damaged. I was however pleased to get a shot that does show its striking colouring.

Family : Nymphalidae Sub-Family : Eurytelinae Tribe : Eunicini

Genus : Eunica Specie : alpais

This seems to be a rarely photographed species.
