Hello
This shrub was clicked at Chennai, South India by the road side. There were only 2 plants in the area, just at this one spot. One plant had dried up flowers and fruits while the other had fresh flowers. The butterflies were more attracted to the plant with dried flowers. The butterflies seen were the blue tiger, plain tiger, stripped tiger, common crow. Yes sir this plant attracts butterflies.  Also what are the good cameras (within the budget of about 25 K, for plant photography, especially for the flowers where images would be sharp through out the picture. These images were taken in Canon 1000D. The images were clicked in  TV mode with flash around 7.30 a.m.

For identification please.

Thanks
regards
Mymoon

Crotalaria sp. of Leguminosae family. In Malayalam (in Tamil as well,
I guess) it is called Kilukkachedy. The dry fruit while shaking makes
nice sound (we use to play around when I was a child). The flowers are
not visible hence I may not be able to confirm the id.

Camera:
You may please visit http://www.dpreview.com and go for a through
research before making a decision. (I did the same for more than 16
months to know the trend, performance and picture clarity). I
personally suggest you to go for Panasonic Lumix series compact
camera. Panasonic is great with clarity resolution and all, when you
need to take macro pictures.
Even point and shoot Panasonic cameras are doing fantastic job.

You may please consult Dr Dinesh Valke who uses a Panasonic DMC-G1
(http://www.flickr.com/photos/dinesh_valke/5593762443/). This camera
is little expensive than that of your budget, I gues (about 40k). But
if you can get the same from the USA you can save around 6-10k, I am
sure.
