There are plenty of butterflies to spot in the Thong Nai Pan area. As the garden at Sunrise Villa continues to mature and new flowers to start blooming there has been an increase in the number and variety of butterflies to be spotted.
Particularly attractive to butterflies are the hedge rows that flank the steps leading up to Sunrise Villa. These have large pink flowers attractive to those looking for nectar.
In the video the yellow butterfly is called a ‘Golden Birdwing’ butterfly and it is a male – only the males have a yellow patch. The other butterfly is a ‘Great Momon’, also a male distinguishable by it brighter and lighter wing tip colouring. As you will agree these are large butterflies and considerably more impressive than the small yellow butterflies found flitting around the shore line.
