It’s the annual migration of the Brown Veined White as millions of butterflies begin the migration journey , or more accurately emigration, as they do not return.
From the south western regions of South Africa the butterflies make their way north east towards Mozambique and head out across open water towards Madagascar.
We are fortunate at the Ark’s spot as our garden is inundated for several days. Like so many great African migrations, numerous passengers come along for the ride and this morning, for the first time, I noticed this beauty.
