Butterflies Part VII
All the other buttering posts here.
In the series of knowing butterflies that we see around our places and in the places I visit, here is the next set for this time...
This is a small attempt to lure people towards the fascinating world of butterflies.
Common Emigrant butterfly
The Common Emigrant or Lemon Emigrant (Catopsilia pomona) is a medium sized pierid butterfly found in Asia and parts of Australia.
Common Pierrot butterfly
The Common Pierrot (Castalius rosimon) is a small butterfly found in South Asia that belongs to the Lycaenids or Blues family. In India the butterfly is primarily found in peninsular India south of the outer ranges of the Himalayas.
The Pioneer White or African Caper White (Belenois aurota) is a small to medium-sized butterfly of the Family Pieridae, i.e., the Yellows and Whites, which is found in South Asia and Africa.
Blue Oak Leaf butterfly
The South Indian Blue Oakleaf (Kallima horsfieldii) is a nymphalid butterfly found in India. The underside appears like a leaf complete with midrib while the upper side is brilliantly coloured. When on underside, such is the camouflage that you just can’t make out unless it moves.
I refer http://www.ifoundbutterflies.org/ and Wikipedia for information about butterflies.
