Two new species spotted in my garden !

Last Saturday, a Lemon Emigrant (Catopsilia pomona) was spotted around my garden on the 6th floor. Unfortunately it didn’t stay long enough for me to take a photo.

This morning however, a Blue Glassy Tiger (Ideopsis vulgaris) came and stayed for a few hours on my Heliotropium indicum plant.

With this 2 new species, the butterfly count in my garden is now in two digits – 10 !

The other butterflies which I am trying to attract to my garden are – Common Mormon, Common Tiger, Plain Tiger and Common Birdwing.
