This was our last day of another great trip to Cuba. We had missed Hurricane Irma though sadly it taken its toll in Cuba making life even tougher for many of the lovely people who live there. We have seen 96 butterfly species in 3 weeks which is more than half of the total of resident species. There have been many highlights including the large number of Cuban Kite Swallowtail Protographium celadon which have been very hard to see on previous visits.
On our morning walk around the local tracks and trails we found there had been a fresh emergence of Antillean Crescent Antillea pelops and Impostor Duskywing Gesta gesta.
We are already finalising our next trip to Cuba in the summer and plan another later in the year but missing the main hurricane season this time. Our thanks go to all our friends out there that helped to make it such a great trip and to the new friends that we made.
