Hi

I'm glad to see that I have a "maatjie" frend looking at smaller things like "butterfly's and insects. Your photo's are excellent.

I have tried to take pictures of butterfly's, I have one problem. They do not want to sit still and open their wings when you have your camera with you. You have to be very pasient with them.

Can you ID these butterfly's

It looks as if you can see through the tips of this fellow.

I could take thee photo's of one sitting on a flower.

The first one is a wandering donkey acraea (Acraea neobule), and the second is also a pale ranger (Kedestes callicles).
