Hello – I just received this picture taken near Lake Baringo by Moses Kandie who is a guide there. Thanks Moses for sending the picture. This is a Citrus Swallowtail (Papilio demodocus) – they are very common at the moment all over Kenya due to the rains. The flowers that it is feeding from are known as the Rosy Periwinkle – they originally come from Madagascar and have become very famous as they are a source of medicine for leukemia…

Beautiful photograph – well done Moses!
Very nice photo. I find butterflies hard to photograph as they are always on the move. So this is a great shot!
I agree with you Rebecca,patience pay when it comes to this.
Thanks to all for the comments
