High Brown Fritillary Butterfly !!

2개월 전

Butterflies are a amazing species of insects one of the most beautiful flying insects in my opinion with there largely scaly colorful wings that make a impression on you each time one flies pass you. They are not a easy insect to photograph as most would agree they move so quickly , this one here which i think is called the High Brown Fritillary i followed carefully for quite a while till it finally landed and luckily it stayed on this flower for more then a couple of seconds and i was able to capture a shot of this beautiful butterfly which i must say , have never seen a butterfly this color before i named it the flying Cheetah and even got another bonus insect in the photo....lol

In this particular flowery bushy area i was walking through in this park it seemed to be a feeding grounds for all types of insects and there were many butterflies just buzzing around me i honestly didn't know where to point my camera they were moving so quickly it was a real task to photograph them closer up but i did land a couple good shots i think. These next few butterflies belongs to the family of butterflies called Brush-footed butterflies.

This i think was my best catch of the day i managed to get up close before it escaped like a turbo rocket i think it could be either a Common Brimstone or a Cabbage butterfly but it is one butterfly that can camouflage itself against foliage but indeed one beautiful looking butterfly it even gave me a good pose for the camera 🙂 🦋 🤭 It is known to belong to the family of Pieridae.
