Caligo memnon – Owl butterflies, of which there are around 20 different species, are members of the genus Caligo, in the brush-footed butterfly family Nymphalidae.

I photographed this magnificent specimen near Klapmuts , Western Cape, South Africa

My interest in the field of photography began in childhood, starting with film, then a ‘splatter’ of videography and finally the migration to DSLR photography.

I hope you enjoy viewing my interpretation of the Natural World through my lens.

    Gorgeous indeed, a lovely image. Have you ever noticed how eye colour varies according to wing colour? White(ish) tend to have blue or green, while brown(ish) seem to have brown eyes?

  • Thanks so much Jesika, I’ve not noticed that, thanks for pointing that out to me!!
