Butterflies of Kerala - a collection.

Although birdsnapping was the primary objective, photographing butterflies also became a side hobby during my stay in India. I owe this collection to my wife who initially preferred snapping them to  birds. Thus my once dominant interest in butterflies was revived. My wife and I together collected the snaps below. Some of them are not identified/ misidentified. Corrective comments are more than welcomed.
