It's been a while...getting to photograph butterflies, I mean. I had almost given up hope!! All I saw every single day were the Common Palm fly and the Cabbage whites! And the Swallowtails, if they came, made sure that my camera wasn't clutched in my hands at that particular point of time!
But yesterday all that changed as I found the Lemon Pansy resting on a hibiscus leaf. It's the most common butterfly among the Pansies (there are seven kinds) and earlier I did manage to take quite a few pictures here, in my garden. The Lemon Pansy is found in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, and Myanmar. This is mostly found in gardens, forest clearings, and agricultural land and is seen on the wing throughout the year.
I took several shots on the hibiscus leaf but when it flew to the bougainvillea bush I got the angle I wanted. Made my day!!
