Euphaedra losinga (Dark Brown Forester)

Happy Monday!

Meet Euphaedra losinga (Dark Brown Forester) shot by Ojonugwa Ekpah. Some of these were sighted in January, 2021 at the Becheve Nature Resserve in Obudu Cattle Ranch of Cross River state, Nigeria. This beautiful butterfly makes the journey of ascending about 1600m to the forest worthwhile.  This species is quite common this period and the bigger females are even more attractive. Many thanks to the Nigerian Conservation Foundation for protecting this species.
