This slogan Le Do Phuong Ha hung on the office corner from April last year to April this year. She said: “My friends went to Hanoi, then turned to Cuc Phuong near Tam Coc Ninh Binh right in April, without any planning. Watching the scene of millions of butterflies flying around the forest that few people filmed, I was so excited, I set a certain goal this year to go to the North to see it live. Since Tet, Phuong Ha has made a deal to invite you to hunt for Cuc Phuong butterflies.
She was in the National Park right after the holidays, “because she was waiting for cheap tickets,” explained Ha, and lingered in the forest all day to “watch butterflies and take pictures.” “It’s so beautiful that there are no words to describe it”. “Like a dream”. “Out of sauce”… The girls chirping with Saigon accents took turns commenting. Mr. Tran Van Bay, an official of Cuc Phuong National Park, said that the annual butterfly season usually takes place in April and lasts about 3-4 weeks. This year, due to a leap February, the time for butterflies to spawn is also later, until the end of April, the number of butterflies starts to increase. This is also the time when the number of people coming to Cuc Phuong skyrocketed.
This year, in just the first two days of the holiday, Cuc Phuong welcomed nearly 4,000 visitors to visit and experience. Also according to Mr. Bay’s explanation, butterflies are cold-blooded animals, they cannot fly when the weather is not warm enough. That explains why, after spring, it is not until the sun rises (usually April), that this species begins to “bloom”. The ideal temperature for butterflies to fly a lot is 27ºC – 38ºC. In the past few holidays, as long as the sun is shining, a stream of white butterflies has appeared right from the gate of Cuc Phuong National Park near Tam Coc Ninh Binh.
The more you go along the main road into the forest core area, the more and more diverse butterflies are. Not only white butterflies that people here call cabbage butterflies, there are also yellow, brown, orange butterflies… But being called the “queen” of butterflies, the phoenix butterfly must be mentioned. The phoenix butterfly possesses large wings, has a tail, and has many colorful colors on its body such as black, white, and red.
It is estimated that there are more than 400…
It is estimated that there are more than 400 different species of butterflies in Cuc Phuong near Tam Coc Ninh Binh. The experience of butterfly hunters many times shows that the ideal time to hunt for photos is around 9-10:30 am, at this time the dew has just cleared, the forest is still empty, butterflies come out to find a mate “as crowded as a festival”. . A little later, the peace of the forest will be affected by tourists and the sound of traffic, butterflies will spread out rather than gather in flocks as before.
“If it’s calm and doesn’t cause a stir, Cuc Phuong butterfly will boldly perch on the brim of hats, shoulders and hang around tourists, this is the best time to take pictures,” photographer Hai Thanh revealed. “In order to attract butterflies to focus on certain points, create favorable conditions for visitors to admire and take pictures, we create some parking lots with minerals such as water, salt, sodium … for butterflies to eat. A butterfly can’t live on nectar, it needs minerals, so butterflies love to “snack” in muddy puddles rich in minerals and salts. This behavior, called “puddling”, especially male butterflies, their bodies synthesize minerals into semen, these nutrients are then transferred to female butterflies during mating, and help the egg’s viability to last longer. “- Mr. Seven revealed.
