Plains Cupid (Chilades pandava)

a photowalk at qutab minar was a treat for me as i was gifted with a patch of cycas trees, and hoards of these beautiful butterflies fluttering around. seeing several at the cone on top, i thought that there is probably some kind of extrusion, like nectar that these butterflies are feeding upon.  _MG_1144

it was only after returning home and googling for them did i realise that these are a few species that use the cycas plants for laying eggs.
