Like so much of what Cambodia has to offer, the butterflies here must be seen to be appreciated. Rest assured, however, that, shot with a point-and-shoot pocket camera and a phone, these images are neither the best representation of Cambodia's butterflies, nor anywhere near a complete selection of what the country has to offer. Most of the specimens were raised from larvae, some from pupae, and a few from eggs. None were killed, but all were free to fly after their photo shoot.
Butterflies in Siem Reap are best observed during the rainy season--June-November--when they find the nectar they need; and caterpillars, the tender leaves and stems on which they feed.
