Butterflies / Moths Everywhere

This morning under the acacia trees there were quite a few of these very small and quick moths. Having no idea about moth species, so these little fellows will need a lot of investigation to find out who they are. Early research steered into the direction of Arhopala centaurus asopus. However, I think finding an expert once I have better photographs will be a better idea. There were taken on the go with a slow camera that tried its best.

One thing that was learned from the experience; was that, it is going to take a lot of practice to photograph one of these next time they are out. I don't think they are uncommon.

However, it was nice to wake up and find the ground shimmering with blues and purple lights.

The butterflies are very beautifully coloured, now pink, now purple, now blue.
