Managed a short visit to KL Butterfly Park during my recent visit to Malaysia.
Here are some of the shots taken with my prosumer cam.

Pic 1: I believe this is the Cethosia biblis.
Pic 2: Roja Brooke's Birdwing
Pic 3, 4: Great Orange Tip
Pic 5: UFO, please help to ID it.

Nice subjects at the KL Butterfly Park! Pity you didn't bring your DSLR along. :)

Yes, the 1st one is the Batik Lacewing (Cethosia biblis). The last one is a Wizard (Rhinopalpa polynice eudoxia). LC Goh shot a male (http://b-pals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5286)also at the KL Butterfly Park in his earlier thread, and you nailed a female, albeit a tattered one.

Thanks, Khew for the ID assistance on the Batik Lacewing and the Wizard.
Yes, it is pity I didn't have my DSLR with me as I was really struggling with the slow focus and shot-to-shot time on the prosumer camera.

It looks like Caveman visited the park not too long before my visit on 21 June.

Great to have a shot of the female Wizard (I would say Witch, but that's a different species). The two photos clearly show the difference in the hindwing shape, which I mentioned on an earlier thread.
