Common Eggfly

I shall be travelling to Indonesia very soon for 4 weeks. I was looking through my archive images of my last visit & I found this butterfly picture.

It is a female Common Eggfly perched on a flower that I am reliably informed is a Zinnia.

These butterflies have a very dark, almost black, upper wing but the underwing is so colorful and intricate. (Viewed in LARGE for more detail.)
