Dear Friends,
Attaching two images.One is of a butterfly ( Plain Tiger On Haliotropa )and the other of Ficus Krishna.This is what Dr Venakatesh says about Ficus Krishna.
" Ficus Krishna ( KRISHNA FIG ) is an unusual variant of the Banyan.Its leaves which are smaller than those of the Banyan have a pocket like pouchon their back at the baseabove the leaf stalk.The religious persons believe that this is because Lord Krishna used them to scoop out butter."

Dear Colonel: I am always eager to look at your pictures of birds and
butterflies enjoying fruits , esp on your banyan trees... my question
today is... where is this Krishna fig or Krishna-bot growing? How
did you get it? from seeds, seedling or cutting?
Thanks
Usha di.
