***********************************************************************************************************************


While teaching a research communication training class in Wuhan, the supervisor and his wife organized a visit to the Shennongjia Nature Reserve in the westernmost mountains of Hubei province.


In a dense forest of spindly conifers, a group of Rhinopithecus roxellana, golden snub-nosed monkeys, 川金丝猴, arrived. This image shows a juvenile monkey contentedly eating bamboo, exhibiting no outward signs of stress at being observed and photographed.

Papilio bianor drinking Buddleja nectar


Photographed on 23 August, 2016 at 2:10 pm in the mountains south of Zhuji, Zhejiang Province, China, with an EOS 1D X camera and a Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 50mm f/2 ZE lens.

ISO 250, 1/320 sec., f/5.6, 50mm focal length, handheld manual focus Manual exposure in 37ºC humidity.

***************************************************************************************************************************

The lush bamboo forests growing on mountain slopes near Zhuji provide a habitat suitable for birds species, small mammals and a full range of insects. During summer cicadas, grasshoppers, beetles, bees, flies and butterflies are observed in abundance.

Papilio bianor, Chinese Peacock, 碧凤蝶, is especially prominent in late August. This image was made on a mountain roadside, overlooking a stream where Buddleja bloomed. The butterfly was so focused on feeding that it tarried despite the lens proximity.
