Butterflies at Bukit Rengit - Sept 2015

Recently i went for a half-day birding trip at Bukit Rengit which is located at the State of Pahang, Peninsula Malaysia. Although the trip was more on birds but i did try a few shots at some of the butterflies.

Orsotriaena medus
Its common name is "Dark Grass Brown and it was found near the forest edge.


Cirichlora emalea emalea
Saw this "Malay Yeoman" wandering in the middle of the road and under the hot scorching sun. Then i realised that it was going to puddle at a dead animal carcass.


Parthenos sylvia
Commonly known as the "Clipper". Seen getting some minerals from the granite stones - probably the minerals were left by some animals.


Lastly this "Common Rose" stayed long enough for a photo shoot.
Pachliopta aristolochiae

I also saw a few "Stripped Blue Crow" (male) and "Lesser Stripped Black Crow" flying around. 

Overall this place could be a productive place for butterfly watching.
