Common Baron

Common Baron butterfly. One of the common butterflies in the Indian subcontinent; a few of them seem to have taken a liking for our backyard. We separate our kitchen waste, which is composted for trees. This one was spotted sitting on an orange peel in the kitchen garbage pile. It supposedly likes the rotting fruit more than flower nectar, probably addicted to the fermenting alcohol found in such fruits.
It was so engrossed in its eating that, it was completely ignorant of my presence. I have to now look around for its caterpillar and pupae; will feature it in future posts if I find one.

  1. The Baron waits handsomely for its photographic capture! A beautiful image, elegance defined!
