A Beautiful Visitor In My Garden

Every morning, I check on my plants as I water them. After watering the plants, if the weather is not hot, I will do some weeding or take some snapshots of my plants.
 Malabar spinach ready for harvest.
These were grown from stalks given to me by my hairdresser.
 Chili seedlings
 Long and slender white eggplant or brinjal.
 Long purple eggplant or brinjal
 More purple eggplant or brinjals on this plant.
 1 white and 4 purple eggplants and 6 stubby okras harvested from my garden.
*     *     *     *     *
And look what I found visiting my garden.
 At first glance, it was not a very attractive butterfly.
 I wouldn't have noticed it if it hadn't moved.
 It was moving in a circle as I aimed my smartphone camera on it.
 And then it opened its wings to reveal its beautiful colours.
 Then it closed back its wings
 and opened it again
 All the time it was not stationery.
 It moved nearer to the side of the flower pot.
 I think it was happy to pose for me.
One last snapshot of this beautiful butterfly.
My legs were starting to feel numb for squatting so long.
