Swamp Tiger (Danaus affinis)

Sorry to disappoint you but this is not a real tiger. It was just a 'common' butterfly but it is reportedly a mangrove specialist. Saw this swamp thing at a mangrove area at Kuala Selangor, Peninsular Malaysia recently.

Front view

Looks quite menacing from the front.


View from the top

Saw at least 5 of them and they can be quite quarrelsome among themselves.


Have a Great Butterflying Year ahead !

Great Egg-Fly (Hypolimnas bolina)

Great Egg-fly Recently i came across this Great Egg-fly. Apparently this butterfly species has some form of sexual dimorphism ...
