changing seasons

We are well into the dry season, and have even had a few light rains to hold the dust down.  Humidity has been very low and temperatures a little chilly for equatorial Africa.

A tree flowers in a patch of coastal forest.

I have noticed on my walks through the forest that leaves have been dropping, making it difficult to walk quietly.  A few trees have been flowering, the smell intoxicating.  Butterflies have been busy collecting nectar when they aren’t basking in the warmth of the sun.

A tiny butterfly with elaborate swallowtails rests on a leaf before dashing off in a flash of brilliant blue.

The dry season is nearing the end of the cycle, and rain will soon return to replenish the parched landscape.
