Common Lime Butterfly, resting on a lantana leaf on the fence between the ICRISAT-Patancheru campus' west perimeter road and Patancheru tank. Initially mis-identified as an unidentified nymphalid (brush-footed) butterfly due to obscuring of the wing outline by a lantana leaf in the foreground of the photo.
