|How many butterflies can you find here?|
Even better, they didn't scatter when we approached and periodically fluttered their wings so we could get some shots.
Some had sky blue wings, others mostly orange with a big white dot on each side; the former had black bodies covered in white spots.
Further along the waterfront we were surrounded by more of these colourful insects, flying around us, seemingly unaware of our presence. Or was it the strong gusts they were trying to counteract, which made them look like they were dancing in the sky?
In any event it was a beautiful, poetic experience that probably won't be repeated again anytime soon.

I'm just thrilled we had a chance to be with so many butterflies!
