Urban Wildlife-Colours of autumn

I am opening this blog with a natural flower arrangement from my garden. Kanahs and roses seem to like autumn best.

The lime butterflies are common

So are the plain tigers.

The grass blue is fashionably judicious in the use of bright colours for that graceful effect.

Turn on your macro lens and whole new worlds open up, like this lady bug in mustard color with a beautiful pattern on her duppatta!

Moth on a shrivelled nest

The photograph above shows a moth resting on the shrivelled nest of an ashy prinia warbler. The leaves are of the creeper "flaming glory bower'.

I have just written a blog on the caterpillar I found on the leaves of the elephant foot yam plant.

Can some one identify whether the moth has metamorphosed from the caterpillar shown? Or are they from different species?
