IT’S BUTTERFLY TIME IN FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND

09 May

The far north Queensland wet season is over for another year and the start of the dry is a great time to see butterflies and moths around the region. During the wet, conditions are just too tough for these beautiful creatures to flourish in significant numbers, but as the seasons change, you’ll see plenty of Cairns Birdwing and Ulysses butterflies, and many more.

Our wildlife correspondent Martin Cohen introduces you to the many butterfly and moth species of Cairns and FNQ.

    One day I’d love to see the butterflys, it’s good to know the season they are prolific. Thank’s for sharing.
