This butterfly is part of the Nymphalidae family. It’s a rather big family, with around 6000 species. Glad it’s not my family come Christmas time… This one was quietly sitting on the side of the road while my attention (and camera) was intently focused on a large herd of elephants. At one point I glanced down and saw this beauty, so glad I did!
