Arduous voyage,
breaking through cocoon confines,
delicate wings dream!

  1. That bit of black and white is delightful. It’s a beautiful butterfly, which reminds me of our sulphurs. But it’s even more attractive. I was struck by your comment that you’ve shown the “dry season form.” When I lived in Liberia, there was no summer or winter. It was rainy season or dry season — with some occasionally dramatic transitions between the two.

    1. I find the study of butterflies even more difficult than birds, since so many species have morphs and seasonal variants – sometimes a species looks so very similar to another that even experts are stumped. But in the end, if the species is correctly identified, the effort is worth it!
      Thank you, Ma’am, for reading, and imparting such gems of information which always embellish my posts.
