Butterflies and moths are always present but at the same time difficult to photograph and (for amateurs like me) difficult to identify. Slowly but surely I am able to recognize and identify these beauties. Picture above shows us the Anartia amathea resting on the lodge's wall.
The Anartia amathea is a common butterfly. I have seen them fluttering near blossoming branches. Sometimes they are in a small group and sometimes alone.
I usually spot them actively during warm days. This one looked really beaten up but it was still alive and kicking during the photoshoot.
They are also known as 'Coolie' butterfly.
