Great photo of a lovely butterfly, Janey! We had many of these down on the allotment as we have an enormous Buddleia at the bottom. It had dozens of bees & many butterflies, especially the Great Cabbage White. I did try on at least one occasion to get a photo of a Peacock butterfly but it didn't keep still long enough. :-(
I've added this to my favourites.

I was down beside the Buddleia this morning when I spotted a Tortoiseshell on a flower spike. I whipped out my phone & tried to take a photo but it moved just out of reach so I tried to take it "blind" but when I saw the result on the computer this afternoon I realized it had gone! ;-(

There are no end of butterflies, mostly the Great Whites, down on the allotment. Bees a plenty, too. Ladybirds by the 100s! I've even seen some Lacewings!

Aw, thanks Camillia....:o) How are you doing for butterflies over in Chitwan?

2 Sep, 2010

 

You know that we have about 600 species of butterflies here in Nepal and many species among them are found in Chitwan too.But unfortunately I have not pictured any of them yet.I will try not to miss out the oppurtunities that I get in the comming days.
