Gaudy Commodore Butterfly

This is a Gaudy Commodore butterfly (Precis octavia sesamus) in its winter form photographed in my garden. Its summer form is red with black markings.

It's a large butterfly that I've always found hard to photograph as it's quite skittish (well at least around me!) unless you come across it early in the morning while it's still cold outside.
