Thai Butterflies

Its been a while since my post about caterpillars and there have been many posts since then and my blog has changed and evolved. It seems only fitting that now I do the same for my post about caterpillars and show them in their metamorphosed forms as the winged beauties they really are.

This post won’t be wordy or a long read, just a collection of some of the pictures I’ve taken as a way to showcase the amazing diversity of butterflies that can be found here in Thailand.

So here it is…..

  1. My daughter recently spent a couple of weeks in Thailand and came back enthusing about the amazing butterflies she’d seen. Thanks for this glimpse of the extraordinary variety.
