Butterflies in the park

Butterflies, moths, fratilliaries are common in all but the most frozen climates, or the most arid ones.

On the cliffs of Dorset, they are everywhere, cabbage whites, red admirals and hundreds of smaller fratilliaries – their frequent but brief flappings among the flowers of the chalk uplands dotting the ‘i’s and crossing the ‘t’s above the white horses of the English Channel.

In Taman Tasik Perdana, Kuala Lumpur, they are much larger and more colourful. Topped with netting, the butterfly park is in the midst of the greenery of the city.

Home to 6,000 butterflies from over 120 species, the park is a stone’s throw away from the city’s vertical central business district, and provide a nice distraction from shopping malls and the verticality that is modern KL.
