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.
