I find it intriguing and interesting that butterflies like the Horsfield's Baron wing pattern can look so different in their male and female form but than, that is because they are dimorphic. Dimorphism is defined in Wikipedia as the systematic difference in form between individuals of different sex in the same species.
This species is quite common as I come across them quite often on bright sunny days, the males being the more often encountered ones.
