Moganshan - Mountain in the Mist
Posted By: Frogfish, 04-08-2011, 12:54 PM

This small mountain, around 270 kms (ca. 170 miles) from Shanghai, and part of the Tianmu mountain range in the province of Zhejiang, is home to numerous villas (now converted into hotels) from around 100 years ago - when British & American expatriates living in Shanghai bought the mountain (for $50 !) and turned it into a cool Summer retreat to escape the heat of a Shanghai Summer.

I thought a run down here for a couple of days to check out the bird population might be fun ! Unfortunately the clouds were rolling over and through the trees that cover the mountain on the first day - though partially cleared on the second day. These are the first shots I've processed and I'll run a commentary on some themes later - hope you enjoy these, I did !

All are beautiful.
That last image, is that a butterfly? I have never seen one like that.

I'm going to Shanghai this summer, any recommendation for more quiet places like this?

Thank you Harish - yes, from what I have seen it looks to be a close relative of the Falcate Orange Tips in the USA (only come out for one week in Spring) - except there is more orange on the wings, when opened, on the Asian version (if they are indeed of the same family).

Thank you Rupert - glad you enjoyed them. Hope Otis did too !

Ardentartichoke - thank you ! If you send me a PM I'll give you some information.
