Taiwan is famous for its beautiful butterflies and dragonflies. Most of them moved too fast for my camera to catch but here are a few examples of the wonderful insects I saw recently. The forests and wetlands were full of flashes of blues and reds and yellows as gorgeous insects flew through the trees or over the water.
Beautiful shots of some gorgeous insects–I especially like the variety of dragonflies.
Thanks Mike – yes the dragonflies are incredibly diverse there!

Twitter recommended you as someone to follow & I thought, “Good grief, I thought I already was following Nigella – in fact I know that I was, what happened?” Well, whatever strangeness happened, it did bring to my attention your interesting naturalist’s blog, with which I was unfamiliar, and these cool insects. Looks like wonderful travels.
Hi Bill – Glad you like the posts! Yes, I think you would have loved the insects and birds in Taiwan – especially the dragonflies!
