Butterfly Catcher

Mid-day on the banks the Chobe River, Botswana, this Yellowbilled Egret darted about catching and eating Sulphur Orange Tip Butterflies

Yellowbilled Egret – Egretta intermedia

Intermediate in size between Cattle and Great White Egrets. Separated from Great White Egret by noticeably shorter neck which is not held in such a pronounced ‘S’ shape, and by shorter bill. Gape does not extend behind the eye but ends just below it. Although not easily seen, yellowish upper legs are diagnostic.

Sulphur Orange Tip Butterfly – Colotis auxo

Medium-sized (wingspan 42mm), variable. Males of dry season form yellow with apical half of fore wings orange. Females with brown spots on fore wings and outer margin of hind wings, orange area sometimes reduced or absent. Yellow area sometimes very pale or even white.

Nikon D4, 16 megapixel resolution, FX format, Sigma 50-500mm f4.5-6.3 APO DG OS lens @ 500mm, 1/3200th sec @ f8, ISO 1000
