Backyard Butterflies - Nov 2015

Sometimes your backyard can also produced many varieties of butterflies. Recently i had a short morning stroll at my 'backyard' and here are some of its butterflies. Most of them were common though.

Psolos fuligo
Its common name is "Brown Bob" and this is how its looks under the bright warm sun. Good morning Bob !

This is how it looks like under the shade.

....and this is how it looks like when sun bathing.

Zeuxidia amethystus
Hiding in the thick foliage was this butterfly which common name is : "Saturn". Apparently it is rarely seen but it certainly does not seem like it came from a faraway star nor has it shown any demonic characteristics.

I believe this butterfly looks more like a "Long Brand Bush Brown" (Mycalesis visala phamis) rather than a "Mottled Bush-Brown" (M. janardana). There were lots of them.


This is how its upper wings would look like. Pretty drab colors but nevertheless it was quite interesting to watch this butterfly as well.


I believe this was one of its friends too - probably a "Orsotriaena medus cinerea" ?

Commander (Moduza procris)
Everything will look nice under the sun.

Harlequin (Taxila haquinus)
I believe this is a female Harlequin

This is how its upper wing would look like.


Archduke

I believe this butterfly is a female Malayan Viscount

Common Faun (Faunis canens)
It kept itself to the dark forest ground so i decided to have some flashlight on it.


Butterfly watching or what i termed as "Butterflying" is certainly another interesting hobby you can pick up.

An Afternoon with Skippers - August 2017

There are higher possibilities that you can find some butterflies in the afternoon rather than birds. While the birds are usually inactive ...
