A short trip down memory lane - in the sunshine of the fabulous GAMBIA
THE GAMBIA - BUTTERFLIES
During two tours over 3 weeks in Nov and dec 2010 we logged 62 species of butterflies and during that time I filmed several of them.
Shown below is a series of photographs and a 9 minute video of just a few of them.
Narrow-banded Green swallowtail
African Caper White
There was also a massive migration of Caper Whites, African Caper Whites and African Emigrants. These three species were seen in their tens-of-thousands everyday. During the evening you could stand on the beach and watch an unbeleiveable number of Caper Whites flying north over the sea, it was spectacular, we estimated that 100,000 butterflies were flyinmg past every hour!!!!!
