Butterflies in the Rainy Season

 Butterflies hide themselves when it is raining, but as soon as te sun comes out, they flit around madly.
 The Blue Tiger is a common butterfly in this season
 This wild flower lookks like a butterfly, and it attracts butterflies.
There are swarms of dragonflies which are  good because they eat up the mosquito larva in the lake near my home!
My thanks to the hosts of Our World Tuesday who are doing a splendid job.

Lilies in my garden

 The Monsoon season is in full swing and there are lilies everywhere in my garden. The spider lilies make an attractive clump with their brilliant white flowers.
 I don't know the name of this lily with large, sword shaped leaves. Every barber's shop has this lily in front !!
 This sweet smelling lily is called Sudarshan in India. It has pink stripes on the underside. It is also known as Milk-and-Honey lily.
The Amazon lily has a heady perfume. Every part of the plant is poisonous.
My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday.
