View Full Version : Another fruitful day at CCA

Managed record shots of four species in CCA. All were taken under very low light condition, hence the poor quality of the shots.

Pic 2: Bamboo Tree Brown
Pic 3: Little Maplet
Pic 4: Suastus everyx everyx

How come you could always attract rare butts. Any secret ?
I want 50% of them !
Well done, Horace !

Wah congrates ! All four are rare butts!!

You got a good shot of a male BTB. The female has a wider white band on the forwing. It is one of the most difficult butt to shoot. Very alert with a very big safety distance..... and always hiding in the shaded areas.

Thanks, Simon, Khew, Federick and Sunny.

Federick, I have no secret on finding rare butts, just luck and timing.
In fact many of my butt outings are not as successful.

Sunny, thanks for the additional info on BTB. Indeed, they are very alert and prefer the shady area. Sighted two flying around, both were in worn condition with the other one missing a large part of its hindwing tornal area. Shortly the few shots I fired, both disappeared without a single trace.
