Tawny Coster (Acraea violae)

Offlate, I seem to have some luck with Tawny Costers. (Acraea violae) They pose for me quite well, and the lighting seems to be delightful each time too.
Came across the pupa of a Tawny Coster in Kumaran Public School. Sketched and photographed it.
Later this month, came across a mating pair of them in Bangalore University campus. A very fresh individual also happened to pose for me. Sharing the images, will put up the sketch soon as I scan.
