View Full Version : First Raid of Panti Forest 2012

08-Jan-2012, 09:52 PM
Left on an unearthly hour of 5.00 am , stop at Sedili Junction for Nasi Lemah ( ( Malay coconut milk rice ), arrived at Panti when it was pitch dark.

The sky kept all the moisture of the whole week for us, drizzle>rain>drizzle>rain .....with just a 30 seconds ray of sun into the base camp and then it poured again! The base camp was a washout ....I see more monkey,birds and frogs than butterflies.:)

I had to disturbed the ""sleepy head"" who had been snoozing in the car to mount a rescue for Nelson and Chng who ventured further down the road when it poured.

After picking them up decided to press on to logging camp to find shelter and wait for the rain to subside....... it did after a 40 minutes wait . We decided to jump into the car and show Chng around the deeper part of Panti and visit a new ground. Just when the butts were out and about ..............it pour again!!:bsmile:

We called it quit at just 12:30pm and headed back and had the best Bah Kut Teh ( Pork Rip Soup) session at Kiong Kee............... it's extra delicious in the rain!:bsmile:

My only consolation is 3 butts with the Yellow Flat mentioned as rare in C&P4.


Mooreana trichoneura trichoneura ( Yellow Flat )

Partheonos sylvia lilacinus ( The Clipper )

Cethosia hypsea hypsina ( Malay Lacewing )

What a great Yellow Flat. I had a good sunny day at Raub but I didn't find any interesting butt except a Blue Nawab. It was too fast and high up on the tree for me to take a good shot. :(

The weather today was so different from yesterday's hot sunny day! ;P

Stayed home and :lazy2:

Thanks for the ride, Uncle Sunny. The Yellow Flat look gorgeous and I like the Bg of the Malay Lacwwing :thumbsup:.

Looking forward to the next trip so that we can explore the "new ground" more ;P

Here are my 3 shots before the rain came :

Sunny, the Yellow Flat is something special. :)

Agreed with Sunny that the Bah Kut Teh ( Pork Rip Soup) session today taste exceptionally good in the rainy and wet weather.;P

The Yellow Flat is gorgeous.
The Clipper is worthy of reintroduction.
The unknown skipper is the Coon (Psolos fuligo), a common skipper which somehow have become extinct in Singapore.

Good catch on the two Yellow skippers! I can imagine the conditions on the site as there was 'watermark' on each and every photo :sweat:
