I was going to mistake this as Tawny mime (Papilio agestor) but then this blog post(link below) saved me from this #taxonomic disaster. Turns out this is Himalayan chestnut tiger (Parantica sita) and Tawny mime is a #mimic of it. At first glance they both look so similar but if you look closely you can make out the difference.
While Tawny mime is a #papilionid butterfly of the #swallowtail butterfly family #Papilionidae , Chestnut tiger is a #danaid butterfly of the brush-footed butterfly family #Nymphalidae . An example of Batesian #mimicry , the palatable Tawny mime is copying the unpalatable or poisonous Chestnut tiger to save itself from predators. How #naturalselection and #evolution works!

Pre-season assist before the lifts spin. "Oh I get by with a little help from my friends". Not gonna sing the rest of that Beatles tune cause then it gets a little mushy. I can't get it outta my head how amazing, challenging, and endorphin charging this was. If you have one of these you really need the other. Unfortunately, I need the spendy one. How did I not know? #believer#stoke#swallowtail#powsurf#stillawintersticker
🍃Nic watched as this little fella was laid as an egg, watched him as a #caterpillar munch his way through a lime tree, and then spin his #cacoon back in early #Autumn . We checked on him all #Winter and he snoozed through the cold and the rain. 🌧
Yesterday Nic said that his cacoon was a slightly darker green that it had been, and he'll probably be done with his #metamorphosis and emerge soon. 🐛
While I had my morning coffee, I checked on him again and tada! Dainty is all grown up! 🦋
It's the small things in life that make you so aware of your own 💚
