Location: Hong Kong
At first glance, there wasn’t much in terms of wildlife in the cities of Hong Kong. Sure, there was the occasional flock of pigeons, or little fly buzzing in my ear, but they surely weren’t that exciting to see.
During an exhausting walk through the boiling city, again, I happened to pass by a plot of flowers.
Flowers in the outdoors are always a very exciting find for me. Not because of their wonderful aromas, partially because of their beautiful appearances, but mostly because they are goldmines. The insects love them. The buzzing bees are the easiest to see, but if you look closely, you will almost always find at least one little critter crawling through the petals.
These red and orange flowers were no exception. Perched atop the dainty petals, proboscis unfurled, was a bright spotted butterfly that to me looked like a cross between a zebra and a tiger.
I’m not sure why they were so basic with the naming and called it a tiger butterfly. I would have called it a Tibra Butterfly.
P.S. I’m on a cruise right now which is why I stopped posting one of these every day. I have no wifi.
