A field visit to the Low country – Wet zone

It was the last week of July 2017 last week and I spent a week in the vicinity mentioned. Within the time period, I was able to visit Seethawaka Botanical Gardens, Baddagana Wetland Park (twice) and Thalawathugoda Biodiversity Park.

I thought of presenting you some of the butterflies and dragonflies that I clicked at the visits. But I would intentionally spare presenting details of them as I am going to caption them with the IDs of the species as per my knowledge. So you can do your own research on further details. As well, there will be some photographs where I have not mentioned the taxonomy, which means i am not able to identify them.

So, enjoy ! 🙂
