Common Jezebel Butterfly

Delias eucharis

Description:

Yellow , orange and black...striking colours. The colours also announce that the butterfly is unpalatable because of the food it ate as a caterpillar. Potential predators therefore know better than to treat it as breakfast. The first photo has been cropped.

Habitat:

Resting on a Polyalthia longifolis tree (with lots of Tailed Jay caterpillar at various stages) just outside my window. Urban residential area.

Notes:

I find this site very useful for butterfly life cycles. This is teh information on the Common Jezebel: https://butterflycircle.blogspot.com/201...
