Photographed and curated by

Fizala Tayebulla and Shiwani

The Photo Essay is a combined effort of CUES team members. The butterflies have been documented mostly in months of October and November across Dheerpur Wetland Park, Malcha Mahal and Pusa Hill Forest in Central Ridge Forest, New Delhi. The identification of the following Lepidoptera species is done to the best of our ability as amateur butterfly enthusiasts, as researchers we are humbled to incorporate changes and learn more about Rhopalocera.

Psyche (Leptosia nina)
Common Evening Brown (Melanitis leda)
Common Crow (Euploea core)
