Dear Friends,

 

Vanakkam! Greetings from Chennai.

 

I recently had a chance to visit a reserve forest (Nanmangalam) in Chennai. I was amazed to see a good number of interesting insects fluttering around. It is a dry shrub jungle, with few interesting wildlife.

 

We found these little white coloured flowers on the trail.

 

Would be grateful for any info shared on this.

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Some Heliotropium species. This should be enough for photographic ID.
