~ Despite low energy from the long drive to Nairobi from Samburu, Ni agreed to stroll through the wooded grounds of the National Museum of Kenya with me. Our primary objective was to photograph summer season plants, as well as any birds we might spot. Walking through the Succulent Garden, where a large xerophyte collection grows, this Junonia hierta, Yellow Pansy, was spotted. As the lens was manual focus, I was grateful that the butterfly remained in one place sufficiently long for this image to be taken. One of the nicest features of a safari in January is observing colorful butterfly species.
