Butterfly Walk @ Adyar Poonga, Chennai


                                          Me with Tamil TV Serial Actor Murali Kumar 🙂

On Thursday, I went to the Butterfly walk at Adyar Park/Tholkappiya Poonga organized by MNS – Madras Naturalists Society, a non-profit organization founded in 1978 to create awareness about India’s natural heritage, document and conserve it through various activities. During the walk, we spotted and clicked many butterflies and the volunteers helped us identify the species, know more about them, their specialty, etc. 

During this walk I had the opportunity to meet and interact with popular Tamil TV Serial actor Murali Kumar, who has acted in ‘Ganga Yamuna Saraswati’, ‘Vizhuthugal’, etc. He is currently acting in ‘Theivam Thandha Veedu’. Mr. Murali Kumar is also a voice artist and (among others) has dubbed for Jackie Chan in Tamil movies 🙂

You may not know that he is passionate about photography too. Since my own pictures were only average (at best), I requested Mr. Murali Kumar to share some pics he clicked with his DSLR and he graciously sent them to me. So, with permission from the artist, I hereby present a few pics clicked by him during our butterfly walk:

  1. He captured great photos and nice of him to share it with you 🙂 Is the park open to public? I really want to visit this garden… but I see it always closed when going to marina.

    1. Yes. Public is allowed only on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:30 PM. The officials take a batch of people on a guided tour from 2:30 to 4:30 PM on these two days of the week. The main gate is on Greenways road.

    1. This butterfly walk is a part of the Madras week celebrations, and this was an event for this year. But even otherwise people are taken on a guided tour on two days, as mentioned by me in the above comment.

      I’d love to visit that butterfly park in Malaysia 🙂

    1. We were able to see and click only a few. The guide who came with us has spotted more than 90 species of butterflies in Chennai, it seems!

  2. Hi! You have put in a picture of a damselfly among the butterflies. This picture is also marked butterfly. So you may want to make the change in its ID.
    The pics are awesome, very clear and capture the amazing colors of the butterflies.
