[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Of course the common butterfly here is the Vanessa Cardui, or the painted lady.

The Plant on which it is sitting though is an Indian rather a Western Ghat Endemic Pogostemon deccanensis or Jambhili Manjiri in Marathi my mother tongue. This plant is from the Mint family. Will post a separate photo of these beautiful flowers another time.

The BG of lovely purple flowers is breathtaking and the overall composition really helps to captures your attention. Great job Himanshu!!!
