Butterflies from Madurai

Madurai is in Tamil Nadu, India. The IV th Development Film Festival organized by Dhan Foundation of Madurai gave me an excuse to visit this temple town famous for the Madurai Meenakshi Temple. Living with the Park was screened at this fesival to an audience of over 400.

Dhan Academy is surrounded by green environs and the use of organic manure and near absence of plastic waste ensures that the place is a haven for a variety of butterflies.

The butterflies flitting about included common crow, lime, pansy, mormon, castor and many more. I could capture lemon pansy, chocolate pansy, a skipper ( my first) and plain tiger.
