|Common Jezebel Butterfly|
Our second outing at Ovalekar Wadi (read about the place and our first trip here) also proved to be somewhat of a damp squib. The light, though, was excellent this time around. But, the chill in the morning resulted in the butterflies taking a bit too long to wake up from their slumber and busy themselves with the task of looking out for breakfast!
Nonetheless we managed to sight the following butterflies: Great Orange-tip, Common Jezebel, Common Bush Brown, Common Sailor, Skipper, etc. We also got some nice macro shots of flowers (with dew drops), caterpillar, dragonfly, etc. I guess we will need more outings to be able to explore the near 100 species of butterflies that can be seen at Ovalekar Wadi.
