Comments: The green butterfly


We walked some more between the high sugarcane plants. Now and then people passed us. It looked like we were following a road going somewhere, probably a town. Then we both saw a large green butterfly, a Malachite (Siproeta stelenes). We have seen this species quite often, especially when there are mango trees nearby, because the adults feed on rotting fruit. And indeed in the distance we saw several mango trees.

I think your pictures are absolutely wonderful,the green butterfly is really incredible, wow such big eyes it has.

Thanks Lynn

Thanks Lynn! I love to take photos of butterflies and have more photos of several species which I will add later this month.
