Fung Yuen Butterfly Reserve

Place: Fung Yuen Butterfly Reserve (鳳園蝴蝶保育區), Tai Po, New Territories, Hong Kong
Equipment: Canon 850IS

Designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1980, Fung Yuen Valley near Tai Po is a forested ravine behind the village of Fung Yuen. This area is recognized as an important breeding site for some butterflies of conservation concern, such as Common Birdwing and White Dragontail. Despite being located on the urban fringe, remarkably more than half of all local butterfly species have been recorded here.
