Colotis annae annae
A follow up to the previous spotting with the many Colotis sp. A medium sized butterfly with dark orange, almost pinkish tips of the wing. I spotted many of those, and all of them had this bright colouration.
High altitude mixed woodland (prim. Acasia bushes) and grassland. This was found on a plant next to a gravel road. Place for the spotting: Mlawula Nature Reserve, Swaziland.
This butterfly has varying amount of dark markings on the wings depending on the gender, location and time of year. Read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colotis_dan... This can also be a Red Tip Colotis antevippe
