Himalayan Glassy Bluebottle These are again the prettiest bluebottles I have seen. Wet soil where butterflies are known to visit for their mud-puddling activity is the best spot to observe these. if cow has taken dump there then nothing like it :-p. Bluebottles, Hedge blues, Peacocks etc butterflies were observed at such sites. These are known facts here to all the butterfly people and hence we don't do baiting while doing surveys for butterflies and rather chose to visit their natural spots and document them.
