Hello Navnith,

Very interesting study showing this social grouping of The Blue Tiger (Tirumala limniace) butterfly. Choice light & a great pov showing this attractive butterfly's features from multiple angles.



Hello Navnith

This definitely is the Blue Tiger, and what a bunch of them you have got here basking in nice light. Wikipedia describes them as gregariously migratory..So your observation is spot on.

Hello Navnith,
The Blue Tiger sucking fluid from Heliotropium indicum, nice picture, good capture.
best wishes,
