    Those are gorgeous pictures. The butterflies were very cooperative, or most likely Richard was just very patient.

    Re: Bangkok Butterfly Garden

    To answer the obvious question, yes, the populations are seasonal. However, I have always encountered at least a few specimens.

    It took a few trips, but I finally came across a Kallima inachus, or "dead leaf" butterfly.

    They weren't too cooperative that day; I wasn't able to catch one with open wings. They are quite colorful with their wings spread.

    Re: Bangkok Butterfly Garden

    Can somebody tell me how to get there-let's say if I take the BTS?

    Re: Bangkok Butterfly Garden

    OK, I will answer my own question, in case it is helpful to others. :-)

    The easiest way to reach Suan Rot Fai is by taking the BTS to Mo Chit or the MRT to Chatuchak Park and from there, hopping on a motorbike for around a 10-minute ride. Or, if you’re up for exercise, walk northwest on Phahon Yothin Road through Chatuchak Park, eventually crossing onto Kamphaeng Phet Road. Despite its name, Suan Rot Fai is nowhere near the former Talad Rot Fai – so if you’re unsure, take a motorbike or ask for directions along the way.
    FIND IT:
    Suan Rot Fai Park
    Kamphaeng Phet 3 Road

    Re: Bangkok Butterfly Garden

    Visited the garden again today. It seems to be a good time. Saw close to a dozen different types of butterflies and a few other assorted bugs.

    Here's a sample:
