Brown-veined White

Brown-veined White

Last year there was an explosion in the numbers of these butterflies and this year again there are huge numbers of them around in certain areas. I spent a couple hours recently trying to photograph a flock of white-fronted bee-eaters as they gorged themselves on the butterflies before sunset. I didn’t get any images of the birds that were worth keeping and had to settle for some close-ups of the butterflies as they settled down for the night.
