A butterfly hunter in Lalbagh, 20th December 2013

Suhas S Sapthagiri has noticed a person (a foreigner by the looks of him)  killing butterflies in Lalbagh, Bangalore, on 20th December 2013.

Whatever  the reason  may be (perhaps he wants to collect butterflies)… killing butterflies can not be accepted; India is no longer`Butterfly collectors’ paradise’ as almost all Indian butterflies are under threat, and some are critically endangered.”
