[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Blue Triangle Butterflies have wings which are black to dark brown in colour with large blue area in the middle. Those blue patterns joint to make a triangle and this comes their common name. The underside pattern of the wings are similar except there are the red spots on the hind wings bottom.

Blue Triangle butterflies fly very fast and are seldom at rest. When they are feeding on flowers, their wings are held vertically and constantly vibrate.

Hi Lakshmi,
I've never seen such a butterfly.
I like his colours so much and he's sitting on a nice flower. The name fits very good.
Very nice shot, thanks for sharing

Hello Lakshmi!
Great capture again.Composition,colours,POV and light are wonderful...
Thanks for posting...

Nice flowers too! The plant I believe is Lantana indica. You get to see the various varieties of this species at hilly areas like Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad.

Graphium sarpedon is Latin name.

Hi, Nice photograhs.. however this is the Common Jay (Graphium doson) and not the Blue Triangle (a.k.a Common Bluebottle). A pic of the Common Jay can be seen here http://www.nerdybirders.com/html/butterflies/commonjay.html
