Butterflies of Islamabad – Blue Pansy. My first series of butterflies and that is of those butterflies i captured in Islamabad, Pakistan. Other series will be butterflies of lahore, pakistan in which i will show you at least 10 butterflies which i captured in lahore.
The first one is blue pansy with scientific name Junonia orithya. It is native to Africa and south east Asia.
I captured it in Rose and Jasmine garden Islamabad. I did not find it in lahore. It was captured in early winter so chances are there it migrated from the upper hills areas. It is sun loving species and found mostly on dirt, grass and other open areas.
In Australia this butterfly is known as the Blue Argus. Although it is a common butterfly of Pakistan, i am yet to find it in lahore.
