Butterflies, Bucks and Bugs at Nannaj

Three days spent at Nannaj really went in a jiffy! Every outing out there had lot of surprises. Presenting the photo feature of bucks, butterflies and other mammals at Nannaj.

Awesome Foursome!! This gang of four Male Bucks were grazing around. So far we haven't seen more than one male black buck in a group. There were juveniles also in the group!

I remember reading somewhere that Nannaj has more that 40 species of butterflies. We were quite happy to spot a few during the trip.To ID butterflies, we have taken the help of book written by Kishen Das and his wonderful site Flutters which is quite informative for amateurs like us.
