There was a time when I felt there were too many Chocolate Pansies flitting around the lantana camara. They even had the gall to chase off other varieties of butterflies who ventured closer to the plant. Naturally that made me cross with them. After all I wanted all varieties of butterflies to visit me. Soon though, the bullies started decreasing in number and then disappeared altogether from the scene. I actually started missing them. But recently, after a long while, they made a reappearance gladdening my heart.
