Common Jezebel.

If at all I had to choose the most hardworking butterfly in our garden, I would without a thought pick up the Common Jezebel ( Delias eucharis )

Jezebel was a princess, and the daughter of Ethbaal, king of Tyre, as mentioned in the bible. But unlike a princess this Jezebel, works tirelessly for its nectar. It is the first to arrive in our garden and probably the last to leave. It spends most of the day on one single Lantana bush, occasionally foraging to the nearby marigold plants too.
