From my son's Garden - 2

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 20 July 2013 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

He was busy nibbling away at the oleander leaves and I could go close to him and take shots.How perfectly his back arches!!! I was a bit disappointed when the gardener told me that he is not the one who changes into a butterfly!!
