Butterflies at Madiwala Tank

The best part of the visit to Madiwala Tank was all the butterflies that I got to see.

I think this one is the Indian Skipper.

This one was the star of the day. Such a lovely pattern and a species that I had definitely never seen before.

The upper wings had the most striking big white spots, which helped identify it as the male Danaid Eggfly

Some other common butterflies flitted around. 
Here is a Grass Yellow (can you tell if it is a three spotted or one spotted kind?)

And some more common species, though I cannot tell if these white/yellows are cabbage whites/common emigrants/or something else
