Good idea Ashish. I will also try to track these butterflies and try to document its metamorphosis. I have documented the green hawk moth (Pergesa acteus) less the eggs.

Arvin... find this plant, if it is one of Lemon (Rutaceae) family you must take close look on regularly. You may find eggs and caterpillars where these butterflies landed frequently for long time.
