A click from early this year...

Indian Common Mormon...
(Papilio polytes romulus)...

An old aging male. Caught this as it was sun basking on a garden petunia flower. The females mimic the Crimson rose, but only slightly...the real models (Crimson rose) being red bodied, whereas the mimics are black bodied... :)

Common Jay butterfly...
(Graphium doson)...

...this could more truly be the Dakhan Common Jay (Graphium doson eleius)...& since the sexes look alike...it would be difficult to say whether it is a male or a female...but following common observation, where the males are seen mud puddling often in tight groups...one can safely assume it is a female!...& a very wary one at that!...a really difficult capture!... :)

A Peacock pansy butterfly...
(Junonia almana)...

...wasn't aware that butterflies too exhibit a warming up mode...it sat a long while with it's wing closed...& then very slowly opened its wings & much later flew away...all this around 8 in the morning!...the hillside might've been dew pearl'd... :)

Not very cold here...since last year round this time...probably due to the impact of climate change...& I'm fascinated by this butterfly behaviour!...
