It almost looks like a school-class on a day out....
What a fabulous shot of all the butterflies, I wonder what made it so attractive about what they eat/drink.
Lisl: It is animal dung, Astrid - full of nutrients and moisture
A beautiful frenzy it is!
Lisl: Quite difficult to make out all the individuals, Elizabeth, but what wings!
Fabulous, Lisl. They called the meeting just for you!
Lisl: Most accommodating, Ginnie, thank you

What a find - a bunch of butterflies - what may be the reason for this congregation?
Lisl: Topping up with moisture and nutrients from some animal dung, Philine
Flying stained glass windows Lisl.

This is an excellent close-up. Beauty on waste. I see this scene where butterflies are attracted to wet dung, quite a lot.
Lisl: Something I rarely see in this country, Louis
