I have been traveling across India, observing, photographing butterflies since 2006. Over this extended period of time, I have had the opportunity to photograph some beautiful butterflies across India. The idea behind this post is to showcase some butterflies that I have photographed. From the virgin forests of Arunachal Pradesh, to butterflies of Himalayan foothills, there will be a lot of variety to see!

I would like to see how many butterflies I have photographed till date & display them here.

Today’s Butterfly: Commander

Name of butterfly: Commander
Location: Jairampur, Arunachal Pradesh
