Autumn Adventure: Butterflies in abundance

Whenever we get a chance to explore South Africa’s wild places I am amazed at the variety and number of butterflies that are on show. This certainly was the case again when we visited the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park in March this year.

      Thank you very much, Carol. Thankfully I am getting better at identifying which families they belong to, if not the species, and spending less time on identifying them than I used to. I am probably still getting a few wrong! Chasing butterflies with my camera is great fun, though I saw it puzzling a few other visitors who crossed paths with me in both Parks.

      Kwazulu-Natal’s subtropical climate must be to thank for the great diversity, Don. As for the alphabetical arrangement, that’s because I labelled them before uploading and the laptop did the rest. 😀
