Commom Awl

The tenth butterfly in the series, is the Common Awl (Hasora badra). Not very common, but found thorough out India. 

This little butterfly, is active early in the morning and late in the evening. Hence, the flowers it perches on are covered with early morning dew- providing wonderful photo opportunities.
One of the quick way to identify this awl is by the spot, other awls have a white band instead of this spot.
This is one of the few butterflies that visits this lovely buttercup flower.
