Xishuangbanna: The Butterfly Edition

August 12, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
This region in Yunnan still has a diverse range of butterflies. This was one expedition where a macro lens is practically mandatory. I didn't bring mine, so this collection has either been photographed with my 70-200/2.8G, or with my CZ16-80 and an extension tube.

Next time... never forget the macro

First pic is of one of the local caterpillars. These abounded in many trees in the region of the 'Elephant Vale'. It's also where we saw one of the biggest 'dick' moves by a Chinese tourist. H e wandered right up to one of these insects, and then scorched it with his cigarette for fun. Bastard.
