SINOBUG
Blue Admiral (Kaniska canace, Nymphalidae)

A magnificently territorial species, this butterfly can be difficult to capture not because it is not approachable (although it can be challenging), but the slightest intrusion of any other butterfly into its sight warrants an investigation and reprimand on the wing. It is a very busy butterfly. 

I have even had them “attack” me before, dive bombing and “beating” me with their wings. I have yet to catch a decent open wing shot however, but rest assured the blue in its name describes vivid blue stripes on its topside.
