Blue Tiger Butterfly

Blue tiger….may be a name least suited for a delicate butterfly. But that is how zoologists have named this beautiful one! Frequenting my garden they are so delightful, moving from flower to flower, adding more colour to the surroundings.

Butterflies start their life as  less appreciated caterpillars and then morph into the elegant beauties that everyone likes.

The Blue tiger butterfly (Tirumala limniace) is commonly found in India and belongs to the group of the brush-footed butterfly family.
