Dear Friend,
If there is a Chandan tree ( Santalum album )in your locality and you are having time for observation,interesting facts are waiting you.
I have recorded 37 species of butterflies on Chandan flowers.Other than Tailed Jay butterfly all other species sit on the flowers for hours together.At anytime of the day you will observe 6-7( minimum )species of butterfly on Chandan flower.Please try.Attaching an image of Glassy Tiger butterfly on flowers of Chandan.
