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
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".

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.
