Butterflies are great mimics. The female of the Common Mormon in the picture below, mimics the Crimson Rose butterfly, which is detested by the birds .But her partner, the male Common Mormon, has no such stratagems. He is an easy target for the birds.
The Giant Red Eye butterfly is named because of its eyes. These skipper butterflies love the coconut tree, and breed in the leaves. All butterflies seem to love the blossoms of the Himalayan Blue Sage, which is flowering profusely now.
This golden brown butterfly is a stranger in my garden, whose name I don't know. Do you know it? Hopefully, in a few days, the migrating butterflies- the Blue Tigers, will stop by my garden!
My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday, where you can see wonderful images from all over the world.
