A flash of electric blue careens across the laterite roadbed. How it can see where it is going in the midst of a wild and jagged flightpath is beyond my grasp. A few seconds later I am surprised to see Graphium policenes resting quietly in the grass at the edge of the roadway. Highly unusual, for I rarely see these butterflies sit still. I manage to make a few photographs while approaching slowly, slowly, until suddenly it is struck by another white butterfly from behind, and off they go like confetti in the wind.

    Lovely capture.

    1. Dave, I think the butterflies here are one on the most beautiful (and overlooked) subjects. It seems I am always finding something I haven’t seen before. Nice hearing from you. DK
