Symbrenthia lilaea

A newly emerged Red Lacewing (Cethosia biblis)

I was on my knees balancing a camera when this glassy tiger touched down elegantly on a twig in front of my lens and gave me a leisurely once over.

Two butterflies in the bush are worth more than one which won't stay still. But what about one which won't and another that will?

2010 and 2011 till now were great to me

see to believe the butterflies I have met with

from places hundreds of kilometres apart

cheers!!!

Yellow Coster | Acraea issoria

dark palm dart

At Nayapakkam, near Chennai

In the morning as the air began to warm, I found this butterfly basking in the mellow sunlight. The yellow eyespots give it the name "Lemon Pansy".

After an hour of modelling and sunbasking

this Dissimilis form of Papilio clytia is all set to go

Best wishes and good luck

One of the wings of this beauty was not fully unfolded!

Scientific Name: Delias eucharis

Location: Kerala, India

Argynnis hyperbius (female)

This butterfly ,called the common grass yellow, is mundane even in Mumbai. This year seems to be special, though. There are hordes of them fluttering around rush hour traffic near Churchgate station, and gardens seem to have a dusting of yellow over them.

At the Theosophical Society, Chennai

 

Really happy to back after a long time.Hoping to be more regular going forward.
