As urbanization grows in the Kathmandu valley spotting butterflies has been harder and that is also the variety that was so common before. This Red Breast Jezebel is also one of them as I haven’t been able to see another one since taking this picture around 2011. A beautiful butterfly with a good color combination, these butterflies come from the WHITES, family PIERIDAE.
