Butterfly: Yellow Pansy

Unread postby RosemaryH » Mon Oct 06, 2008 1:38 pm

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.


Golden Rule of any SANPark - DO NOT feed or put food out for ANY species whatsoever!

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