Large Faun Licking Leaf This was the first of many butterflies I saw on this day. I'm used to hikes where seeing a single butterfly on the ground is a good day - I had no idea I would see so many different species in a single day.

David pointed out the bright blue eyes which contrast with the overall brown shades.

Common Jester The little spikes at the bottom on this individual makes it easier to identify as a Common Jester. This colour pattern is quite common and there is quite a bit of variation in the pattern within each species.

Banded Tree Brown This butterfly really liked this rock. The rock was in the middle of the meadow and lots of people walked by. The butterfly would sometimes take off, only to turn around and return back to almost the same spot.

Changeable Lizard Basking This guy was basking at the top of a waist high bush - he was perfect height for photographs. I expected him to disappear when we got within metres of it, but it was quite patient. The lizard was basking so he was probably cold.

Red Flanked Bluetail In Forest These birds are wintering in Hong Kong. Some years see many, some years few. The other photographer there said this has been a poor year - few birds present in Hong Kong. This particular one is reliable - it stays in the same stand of trees every morning.

Russet Percher Another species we saw at both the nature reserve and the the butterfly park. Most of the dragonflies you see in BC have entirely transparent wings, some with spots on them. This species is the opposite - opaque wings with transparent spots.

This photo is a composite of two images for depth of field.

Asian Common Toad Oh, saucy! This wasn't a large pond, but I'm sure it's big enough for this pair.
