Red Lacewing Butterfly

Location: Peace Stupa, Pokhara Nepal


Found in altitude from 700 to 6700ft these lacewing butterfly. This is a male lacewing and the female are grey in color. Spotted this butterfly when I was on a hike upto the peace stupa in Pokhara. The area that covers the peace stupa is definatly a good place to spot butterflies because of the flowers in the garden. Wasn't able to take a good picture as it was already noon and butterfly seldom tend to sit still during that time.
