Common Crow Butterfly (Euploea core)

The common crow (Euploea core) is a common butterfly found in South Asia to Australia. In Australia it is sometimes referred as the Australian crow. It belongs to the crows and tigers subfamily Danainae (Danaini tribe) of Family Nymphalidae.

This chrysalis or pupa I photographed in Bangalore, India just looked like a pure gold pendent, though the beauty is difficult to capture in camera.
