Indian Jezebel Butterfly also is known as common Jezebel. Its scientific name is Delias eucharis. Seen here sucking the juice of wildly growing Lantana Flower. It is one of the most common butterflies seen in India. Red, Yellow, Black and White colors form a beautiful and distinctive pattern on the wings of the butterfly. What a beautiful creature.

Butterfly – Photography

Lantana flowers are well known to attract a wide variety of butterflies. If you want to have your own private butterfly garden, let the Lantana plants grow around your house. And butterflies will soon follow. You do not need to do much to grow Lantana – it is a wild widely growing plant with multiple flowers. And pretty much fends for itself.

This image was captured at the fields of Taleigao, Goa. One can find a variety of butterflies in this area during the post-monsoon season. All that one needs to do to photograph them is have patience. And follow them until they land on one of these flowers.

I photograph and post the natural beauties like birds and flowers. You may see here
