Sammilan Shetty's Butterfly Park, Mangaluru, Karnataka. Sep 2016.
Beautiful bright green over dark black body. Large butterfly of 100mm. Found in most parts of India, except the Ganga plains.
Continuously flutters its wings even when sitting on flower to take nectar. After hours of wait got this shot of this fellow resting. Probably because one of the wing is chipped off due to predator attack.
This butterfly breeds very fast, taking only little over a month from egg to adult. Can have upto 8 broods in a year.
