Birds and Butterflies
It is my third day in the jungle. Well, to be honest, it is pretty much a tourist resort. Especially today being a Saturday and there are hordes of tourists pouring across the river to explore the jungle. I got up late again. It must be the heat – it is so exhausting. You sweat constantly and it is so humid.
I stopped at the tree again this morning and there were heaps of birds feeding on the seeds again.
This is a female as it is a turquoise colour with black on the wings, almost the opposite of the male which I photographed yesterday.
This is a male and female pair of Thick-billed Green-Pigeon. Note that the male on the left has brownish under the tail and the female has white and the male has the reddish-brown patch on the wing.
After the tree, I went down to the swamp, hoping for some birds along the edges, but there was nothing doing. But there were heaps of butterflies flittering around in the grass.
This one looks a lot like a Monarch Butterfly, but probably isn’t. Its wings were very battered.
This is a very plain-looking black and white butterfly.
I could not get over how silky and furry this brown beauty was. I really love the texture of this gorgeous butterfly.
