The Lizard and the Lime Butterfly

“Have you seen a lizard and a butterfly in the same video?” asked Lilian Sng.

The Changeable Lizard (Calotes versicolor) was on the Lantana (Lantana camara) bush first. Then the Lime Butterfly (Papilio demoleus malayanus) flew in to feed on the nectar of the flowers.

Both the lizard and the butterfly appeared to coexist, with the former eventually moving away. It did not try to predate on the butterfly. It can be because the opportunity failed to materialise. The butterfly was way beyond the reach of the lizard – at the ends of the branches rather than on a branch.
