photographing and learning about wildlife
Roadside stretch of dusty area, surrounding thick forests with lots of bushy undergrowth. Nearby stream used by drivers for vehicle washing. Hot region. Low altitude.
This and other butterflies were frantically feeding on dirty mud by the side and inside a main road under the hot sun. There was no way of getting photos of these jewels other than falling flat on all four! Without hesitation I dived and managed some of these ground level side shots! By now being quite a senior doctor many zooming by in their vehicles seemed to recognise their doctor as I could see the shock on their faces! Thanks PN!
