Attractive combination of black, white and a touch of red.


About 2 hours drive from Kolkata city (coordinates) there is a small village called Deuliam which is famous for a 10th century brick temple. This village also grows vegetables. This butterfly was on the ground in the space between two rows of potato plants.
