Visions of forest browns...

Postby amytsang » Tue Sep 04, 2012 6:46 pm

Over the last month, I have encountered many a brown butterfly but they aren't dull when one notes their blue wing trimmings, bright top wing colours, 'moon' patterns etc. Just when we think everything is well camouflaged in nature, then suddenly we are enthralled by her stunning colours and patterns!

In spite of their "nuisance" abundance, I have never witnessed a pair of mating Choclate Pansies. Well done for an interesting series! :clap:

Thanks, Laurence. True - considering there are so many Chocolate Pansies around, one would think we should encounter their mating activities quite frequently. They are profilic both in parks and forest areas - infact I think they may be one of our most successful butterflies However, this is my first time witnessing a pair of Chocolate Pansy butterflies mating. Cheers!
