Butterfly's in Sri lanka (part 3)

To the naturalist, Sri Lanka offers a tantalizing array of interesting and unique forms of the 242 known species, most are found in the regions of the lower foothills (i.e. up to 910 meters). A few (6 species) can be glimpsed above 1210 meters.

A most spectacular scene is the seasonal migration of butterflies during March and April, when tradition has it that they fly towards 'Samanala Kanda' (Butterfly Peak), the local name for the mountain more famous as 'Sri Pada' or 'Adam's Peak'.
