I saw the Bushveld Purple tip while taking a dip in the pool at our lodge. It was so pretty!!! I ran for my camera, assuming it would be gone when I got back, but I was surprised to find it still there!!! I got several nice pictures of it. We don’t have one like this at home.

I know virtually nothing about butterflies so I really enjoyed this blog, Nick. Looking forward chapter 2.

That African Migrant is a nice one. I once saw a large group of them at a little pool of water, in all sorts of different colours. Their colouring was from whitish to orangy, and all not bright colours, but quite subdues. It was really beautiful, we stayed for quite a while with them.

Sadly we don’t see very butterflies here anymore. We live in a city and I suspect their environment is endangered by spraying for mosquitoes and other insects. It is lovely to see all these colorful butterflies at Londolozi. Victoria

We live in a city with lots of gardens and plants but we no longer see very many butterflies. I imagine they are endangered by spraying for mosquitoes and other pests. It is great to see all the exotic ones you have. Victoria
