The pictures were taken yesterday 13.11.2012 at 6.30pm. The beautiful butterfly enjoyed marigold flower so much that it kept coming back. A quick check in the internet identified it as either plain lacewing  (cethosia penthesilea methypsea) or malay lacewing ( cethosia hypsea hypsina). I can't figure out which one.

  4. Cethosia is really a very lovely butterfly, although i haven't seen it yet in our garden. I guess we don't have the vine which hosts its larvae. But we have lots of marigolds too and it also gets a lot of insects and other butterflies we have around.

  5. Beautiful. How did you catch the pictures Bangchik? You are good, not just with the camera, but more importantly with nature.

    And Bangchik, the word verifications are really tough.

    1. Ohh.., with butterflies, you need luck more than skill. Lacewing butterfly was very friendly in fact, and it didn't seem to bother with my statue-like presence right in front!!

  9. You have a beautifully captured pose in the first and second pictures, so airy and delicate. I am loving the scalloped edging on the wings further enhanced by the black and white outline! Butterflies are like flying paintings :)
