Nice timing Raju. Keep it up. You may prepare a small writeup if this
butterfly visits the flower most often, also record the timing, and
check if fruits are formed or not. In short, study the pollination
biology of this. Will be interesting.
Regards
Pankaj

Prof. Singh,
I feel it is a butterfly-  could be a Spotted Demon- Notocrypta feisthameli.

Promila
