Butterflies in April

The Common Crow is a butterfly which is often seen in the gardens. It feeds on poisonous milkweeds as a catterpillar, and becomes poisonous itself! Birds don't seem to relish it.
This brown and white butterfly is not so common.


The Sergent butterfly has stripes reminding of the army sergent. This one had lost a part of its wing.

  2. It warms my heart to see these lovely butterflies, Lotusleaf, thank you. And the tree name you provided, and I saw from the post on April Phool was spot on. So pretty in pink too. Thanks! :-)
