Vermilion or Orange Forester

Euphaedra ruspina


Euphaedra ruspina, the Common Orange Forester, is a butterfly in the Nymphalidae family.


Afrotropical ecozone. This was seen from a path in thick forest in central Uganda.


Sorry for the poor photo. It was dark in the forest and I had the wrong settings and only had 1 chance to capture this one before it flew off.
