Peacock royal

Tajuria cippus


Small butterfly whose wings have markings like eyes and antennae like extensions which also have the ability to wave it just like the real antenna. Difficult to distinguish between both ends at first look. It developed this mimicry to escape from potential predators. Flash of brilliant blue when wings are spread.


Spotted on a pomegranate flower.
