The Common Fivering(Ypthima baldus) is a small butterfly of Satyrinae sub-family of Nymphalidae.
The brown body of the butterfly has forewings with yellow ringed black oval spots (Ocelli). In the wet season form of this butterfly we can see the five rings on its wings where as the dry season form as shown in this video has only one pair of prominent ocelli. The wing-span is 38-46 mm.
This species is found in Sub-Himalayan region, Central and Southern India. It is known to feed on grass.
This dry season form of Common Fivering was photographed and filmed in the school garden by us on 5th of Mar 2009. We used Adobe Premiere to enhance the video. The reference was traced from Wikipedia.
