    Federick,

    Wow, you have so many amazing butterflies! I don't recall seeing photos of many of these. The photos are fantastic.

    Was the Indian Purple Emperor hard to approach?

    Those jezebels were fantastic! Les must have been ecstatic to see these.

    I look forward to many more photos from the trip.
