Birth of a New Life and Fault of Nature!

Foliage garden has its advantages and disadvantages After the rainy season the greenery is past admiration. nature is at its best. This is also the time for butterflies and other insects to lay eggs for increasing their fraternity. My garden was also attacked by these hundreds of butterfly eggs. Why attacked..because the new caterpillars eat their way to health and your plant suffers a  slow death!

Mostly the lemon plant is their favourite. Here the picture of a Bamboo plant and the fresh lime green larvae is developing a cocoon.The picture quality is not so good as it has been taken by a mobile phone camera.

The caterpillar Pupae
 One the day of birth the beautiful butterfly removes and frees itself from the cocoon. The mother is there on the watch though she is helpless in the hands of nature. Unfortunately this particular one could not come out easily and its one wing got stuck up in the cocoon. It struggled for a day and in the end was found eaten by black ants. This is the bitter truth of nature. The survival of the strongest theory works everywhere ,.more so in nature which is automatic.

Though it was beautiful and very large in size due to a small fault it could not survive. A moment to spare for this beautiful wonder of nature!
On a positive note again I have spotted the large same type of butterfly and also a yellow one coming and laying eggs. Best of luck dear butterfly!
