Orange Oak Leaf or Indian Leaf butterfly
Kallima inachus

Generally found in tropical rainforests, these large butterflies spend most of the time resting among the foliage that provides their camouflage. Indeed, birds that may chase them when in flight will often lose sight of them as soon as they land. They typically feed on rotting fruit.
