Dear Friend,
           At this time of the year you can see numberof butterflies on different flowers and number of birds on flowers/fruits.Lunch is available free,one will have to search.Bluethroated Barbet is on Bullock's Heart fruit(Annona Reticulata ).Treepie is on Kumkum Tree or Kamala Tree( Mallotus Philippensis ).This is what Dr Venkatesh Says about the fruit of this tree,"The fuit is three-lobbed and is covered with a fine felt of red glands on the surface.These are collected and a powder known as Kamala extensively used for dyeing silk is prepared."If the tree is available in your locality,please rub the fruits and you will find orange colour on your hands.Common Rose butterfly is on Clerodendron and Leucas.The world is beautiful.Remain happy.
