Unknown butterfly-moth

I am not even sure whether this is a butterfly or a moth. I am interested in help with id. It felt even more well camouflaged at the time I saw it than in this image.

Thanks for this. Reading the description of this species and of the following one makes me feel this one fits better to Hamadryas feronia, the blue cracker or variable cracker. This is based on the descriptions in Wikipedia.
