I had a tough time trying to photograph a butterfly when it was sucking honey. Was successful a couple of times - the blue mormon was a real good shot!
Adjacent to the butterfly park is a museum which houses colorful butterflies with interesting information. Few things which caught my fancy were that male and female butterflies of the same species look different with different colors. And no two butterflies of the same species also look alike. These facts were very strange and astonishing for me!!! I remembered the Japanese name for butterfly as "Chow Chow" as it is the name of a vegetable in Tamilnadu.
A short movie about butterflies is played in the museum in English and Kannada. The walls of this movie room display hundreds of butterfly samples made of paper and crayon pencils.
One more soothing place near the park is the pond in the backyard surrounded by wild trees. You can sit, relax and enjoy the scenic pond.
So a natural butterfly park, a natural pond, a hands-on museum, and a video show ~ four-in-one place for you is the Bannerghata Butterfly Park. Surely worth visiting more than once.
