BUTTERFLIES TOUR - 17 DAYS BUTTERFLIES OF UGANDA EAST AFRICA

Most butterfly species in Uganda and generally in East Africa are day-flying so they regularly attract attention. The diverse patterns formed by their brightly coloured wings and their erratic yet graceful flight have made butterfly watching an interesting tourist activity. Some migrate over long distances, across a number of regions. Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif, design and decoration in the visual and literary arts. Scales on the wing give the colours. They feed primarily on nectar from flowers thus many of the species are common in the tropical rainforests of Uganda, such as Mabira, Bwindi, Mgahinga and Kibale Forests. By deriving nourishment from pollen, tree sap, rotting fruit, dung, and dissolved minerals in wet sand or dirt Butterflies are important as pollinators for some species of plants although in general they do not carry as much pollen load as the birds. They are however capable of moving pollen over greater distances.
