Thanks for having a look.
This was Acraea violae (Tawny Coster). A migratory species from Thailand.
Kind Regards,
Stingrey

Very beautiful Stingrey, looks like everything matches perfectly. The background colors are just right for the subject IMO :wink:

Thanks Doug.
Was fortunate to spot it and think it's drying up the wings before the morning flight.
