A Common Rose Butterfly feeding on Marigolds. The Common Rose Butterfly is also known as Atrophaneura Aristolochiae, Pachliopta Aristolochiae, Swallowtail Butterfly.
It was unexpected for us to find blooming Marigolds on our way back from Mayureshwar Wildlife Sanctuary. It was a private flowering farm. To add to our joy was this Common Rose Butterfly going crazy looking at so much nectar to drink from. We closed in, and the Swallowtail Butterfly closed in too! The result was this colorful beauty.
The picture of this Common Rose Butterfly is available for sale as Premium Photo Painting ready to decorate your wall. For preview, and to purchase, open Premium Photo Painting of a Common Rose Butterfly
