Welcome to my ecological garden in the tropics. Hope you find peace and tranquility here.

With the onset of the monsoons, insects as well as birds and squirrels are hoarding food. These brown butterflies were busy loading themselves wit sugar from this over- ripe mango fallen under the tree. You can see the ants' nest besides the mango.
There were six of them at one time, but my stealthy arrival warned them and some flew away.
The resident male Eggfly butterfly did not bother about these brown ones. He was busy taking a nap in the watery sunlight.
