Although it is the largest butterfly to visit my garden, it is usually chased away by the much smaller jays and tigers. I was thrilled when I could at last capture a Blue Mormon yesterday as she was flitting from flower to flower.
The pale blue colour of the wings is the same shade of blue as the plumbago blossoms.
The Blue Mormon is a native of south India and SriLanka. It is a pollinator of cardamom flowers.

How pretty that is - I have cardamom, but think it is the false one that doesn't produce seeds.ReplyDelete

I had the Great Mormon in my post yesterday. I was wondering how I never came across the Blue Mormon. No wonder it's a native of the southern region! What a beautiful butterfly! You're lucky to have such a visitor!!ReplyDelete
Hi Lotusleaf, thank your for dropping by at my blog. I've just started browsing your blog today and shall continue exploring it very soon. Really hope my tiny backyard garden will attract butterflies too :)ReplyDelete
