Video: Butterfly Watching in South Sulawesi 2014

Sulawesi is an island in Indonesia.  It is the world’s 11th largest island.  There are about 560 known species of butterflies.  239 of them (>40%) are endemic to the region.  We visited the place around end September.  The weather had been dry since March.  It was definitely not the peak season for butterflies.  Still, we were able to find quite a number of butterflies.
