Dear All:
at a local Ashram garden... it was tranquil, very hot and
 the TAGAR miniature tabernamontana divericata were blooming and
 seemed to be popular with a group of Chilades pandava pandava butterflies...
 the first one is a recent hatch- ling I think... its wings are intact...
the one with the open wings has seen better days... there are tears on its wings...
 fights with fellow butterflies or
flew into a crow or two who may have tried to make a meal of them...  ????


enjoy....

ps if I have the ID of the butterfly wrong...
please feel free to tell me, esp if you happen to be an expert...

Nice catch. Miniature tabernamontana divericata are ornamental and
being popularised. I have these plants in my garden and observed many
insects and butterflies visiting the plant.
