Yet another butterfly trip to the DFNP

Haha, seems I've been going back to back to DFNP, which
is a good spot for butterflies. This time, finding the butts
was easier, thanks to KC Tsang, someone who posts on the
Bird Ecology Study Group, and his wife. They're suddenly
interested in butts. So moving along, The first interesting thing
I saw was these moth caterpillars on bird's nest fern.

There were a few common bluebottles and tailed jays flying
around the leea indica trees, which were far away so I
couldn't get a shot. There were a few yamfly butts as we moved

At the muddy patch where cruisers and bluebottles
favour, we saw common mormons puddling restlessly and
a mating pair of Malayan eggfly, underneath a leaf.
And on a really grassy area much further on a small
skipper I cant identify. So, if anyone knows what it is, please

It was already 5pm when we got out of the trail. We were a bit
tired, and the butterflies seemed tired too. Just like this male common
mormon puddling at the beginning where we started.

To end off this post, a male common palmfly feeding on
Singapore rhododendron fruits.
