Monsoon is the time when India gets rainfall. It is a time of joy for everyone, in spite of the muggy weather. It is also the flowering time of some plants and the mating season of some creatures.
The painted ginger which flowers during the monsoon season is a valuable medicinal plant. Its leaves are used in the treatment of diabetes. Most people know it as "Diabetes Plant".
The frogs keep up a serenade to their mates through the night.
The Butterfly Ginger has a heady scent. It opens in the night to attract night flying moths.
This beautiful butterfly is called an "Eggfly". The male has these egg like parkings, while the female is not so attractive.
After years of drought, the monsoon has stated with a bang, and most rivers are full. The waterfalls of the Western Ghats are attracting thousands of visitors.
My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday.
