Common Jezebel butterfly

The Common Jezebel (Delias eucharis) butterfly is found all over India, except in the desert area.


It has bright coloration to indicate the fact that it is unpalatable due to toxins accumulated by the larvae from the host-plants.


The above pictures were shot at the Lalbagh Botanical gardens, Bangalore.
