美鳳蝶 papilio memnon

昨日到南丫島,從榕樹灣環島半行到索罟灣碼頭。抵達索罟灣海岸前一民居角落,跟伯伯買過飲品,便在他檔位駐腳的海芒果樹底,看到美鳳蝶追逐。一隻雌性跟著兩只、三隻、五六隻雄性一列飛繞慢舞。我也是第一次看到如此追求排舞 (一追一,甚或二追一都看過)。

this is the first time i saw a mating dance of butterflies – seen one male or two male chase after a female before, but not like this – such a ritual with rhythm and elegance. three, four, five male chasing after one female. no aggression between the male and female and among the competitors.what a remarkable experience from an enjoyable hiking trip with friends visiting from singapore at lamma. this butterfly dance happens at a residential corner turning towards the coast of sok kwu wan.
