It seems to love the Almond tree [Terminalia catappa] more as I have seen it fly around, up there. It does not come down much or sit, but it rests on the leaves of that tree. When it flies, we can see the metallic blue on its upper wings. It is a wonderful flight. Quick flier also. We must consider ourselves lucky to shoot photographs from close range.
