I am loving this thread, with it I have managed to id "my" African Monarch and I think "my" Garden Inspector, although mine has a slight different colouration. Who needs a Butterfly Book with you guys around? :clap: :clap:

Can you help with this one? It' really beautiful.

Please read the green gate permit you will receive on entry to the park and stick to the rules.

Can anyone help with an ID for these butterflies? Are there two (or even three) different sorts? Seen at Marakele on 10 April 2012.
