Another photo in mid-January 2009 in the Purple Butterfly Valley near Maolin in the South of Taiwan.
f13 1/60th sec flash spot metering
Scientists have found that at least nine species of danainae butterflies (milkweed butterflies, so named because they lay their eggs on milkweed plants).
Each year they migrate late November early December from northern and central Taiwan as well as China to the warmer and sheltered valleys near Maolin.
In March the butterflies begin courting and mating, and then individually fly north to the breeding areas.
The Maolin area is on par with the most famous site in Mexico which in winter is home for millions of Monarch butterflies from the US and Canada.
Iím very pleased the first 3 up-loads of butterflies from Maolin have got your interest. Thank you for the comments and support.
Have a pleasant evening. The week-end is coming.
