Butterflies are free to fly

26 12 2010

My sympathies to the snow-bound northern hemisphere but I had fun on Christmas Day photographing migrating butterflies.

Mylothris agathina - "Common Dotted Border"

This is a male of the species and curiously I only saw males. My lawn is dotted with dandelion flowers (it IS a batchelor lawn!) to which the butterflies were attracted. I was just a case of sitting still and waiting for butterflies to land on a nearby flower. There can be worse ways to spend an hour or so on Christmas Day!
