Before I continue, I must confess that these photos are all not taken by me but by a colleague. Anyway, I am posting them here to showcase one of my favourite wildflowers Ageratum conyzoides (Family: Asteraceae / Compositae) as well as the numerous butterflies feeding on the fresh nectar of its newly bloomed flowers.

It is amazing that within a 3 m stretch, there are at least 15 butterflies from the Nymphalidae Family - Plain Tiger, Blue Glassy Tiger, Common Tiger and Striped Blue Crow.
