No. 1. Some Of The Beautiful Butterflies Of Asia!! Story.

Hello all, the rains have put a stop to most outdoor activities here.
It becomes boring when you can’t even get out to an internet café.
Now hopefully I can answer all the mounting comments from you wonderful
Friends out there in cyber land.
For all you Lepidoptera or Entomology Fanciers.
Just before the rains started, we took a walk around to see if we could see
anything interesting to take a few photo’s of.
Not many flowers about, but some beautiful butterflies darting from plant to
Here is one of the local beauties, perched on this Lantana.
I hope it may add a little colour to your day!!
Now have a three hour connection, Hooray!!!
Best wishes.

Walkabout- John. Laos.

    What a beautiful shot with so many details and wonderful colours...!
    Neverending rain is also not my piece of cake; reminds me of the monsoon in India...
    So let's keep our fingers crossed that it will stop soon and you can enjoy the outdoors...!
    Best wishes, Claire

    Becomes more attractive because of blur and sharpness. Well, Lantana is my favorite wild flowers.
