The pattern of white barring on the wings is individually unique and, as Dr. Hansen's photos show, depending on the light, the color on the wing panels may show green or blue (upper four, Udzungwa Mountains, 7-07). The photos in rows 3 & 4 were taken in Arusha NP (5-08); the flight photos, in the Serengeti (12-07). The above photo was taken in Arusha NP (12-04), courtesy of Gian Schachenmann; click it to see five enlargements.
