Season is calling. Thanks to Rohit Girotra and Deepa Mohan to get me interested in butterflies. Though I have zero knowledge of dynamics about this colorful creature. Here are some of those beautiful butterflies of Lalbagh, there are many more but not able to take because of time constraint. Bet you some more till next week.
