Caterpillar and butterfly bloom

The rains have come and definitely make any field-work a lot more complicated. Trees and lianas grow so fast that access-paths disappear within days and boots get heavy with mud the moment you set foot in the forest.
Big game safari: butterflies!
 Some populations though, are thriving. Butterflies are swarming everywhere and possibly more exciting, we get to see their larvae stage; caterpillars!
