Cute Little Butterflies

This is about three cute little butterflies in my garden.

Red Pierrot

Let me start with the Red Pierrot (Talicada nyseus). Striking colours while perching; may be 2-3 cm of wingspan. While taking wings the brown colour is visible with orange markings. Kalanchoe plants are the hosts for the larvae and invariably the plant is eaten up!

The other two butterflies, Common Grass Yellowย (Eurema hecabe) and Small Grass Yellow (Eurema brigitta), look similar except the markings on the wings. While in flight, black border of the wings are visible. They also have a wingspan of 2- 3.5 cm.

These cuties fly close to the ground level.
