Chiang Dao Butterflies - Part One

Butterflies puddling
Chiang Dao is not only an excellent area for birds, but also a great site for butterflies. Anywhere in the area is good, with Wat Tham Pha Plong and the nearby hot springs particularly good, but by far the best area is the car park at the check point along the Muang Khong road, were a fantastic range and number can be seen puddling after the park officials have damped down the car park. Many bright and spectacular looking species are usually present along with a bewildering number of blues.
