I thank my uncle Mr.H Satish,my cousin Goutham Ramesh, my uncle's friends :- Mr.Murali,Mr.Arun kumar,Mr.Amar and others for encouraging me and also thank my parents of course without whom I could have not done this.
The picture I have posted today describes about 18 species of butterflies which I had captured in Butterfly park and Omkar hills in Bangalore.I have posted some of the species as i could not post many of them at once.

1. Small Orange tip
2. Common Leopard (just emerged from pupa)
3. Dart Palm darts
4. Lime Butterfly
5. Cerulean
6. Common Castor
