Also called the Correa Brown, this is the orange butterfly I mentioned a few posts ago – hard to find one settled enough for a photograph. I had given up chasing one about, when this one landed right by my feet, staying long enough to get a few shots. In this first one, I love how the light catches the wing edges during a rare spread.


I can’t decide if I prefer Correa Brown over its other name – Orange Alpine Xenica.

Thanks for looking.

    You do realise that they all have a meeting to decide who will visit your place, sometimes they hide then they get tired of waiting for you to find them so come to you. Good photo’s again
