These were taken on our first day in Bhutan last year. We had just arrived and decided to just hang out at the guest house for a while to recover from the travel. I took the camera and explored the grounds a bit when I came across these unremarkable-looking, brownish-greyish butterflies:Except that then one of them gave the game away: I don’t have better photos, unfortunately — these guys clearly know that they attract attention when they open their wings and prefer a life in obscurity. (But they definitely made us decide to invest in a macro lens.)
If anyone can put a name to them, I’d be most grateful. This would be a species that is comfortable living at high altitudes and fairly chilly temperatures in the Himalayas.
