... or thereabouts. ;P

Those of you who are familiar with the old Silverlines HQ, which is now destroyed, may wish to note that the plants are recovering temporarily whilst the area is under construction.

There's a big bush which looks like the host plant of the Dark Caerulean, and several females (I counted 6) were fluttering actively and stopping to lay eggs once in a while. Not easy to shoot them when they are alert.

Also spotted the elusive Long Banded Silverline, but they were too high to shoot. One tattered individual came down for a rest, so I believe they are back there, only not so easy to spot.

So, who wanna go there on this Thursday's public holiday? :bsmile:

The flower buds in the your pic (in post 1) showing the female DC ovipositing are different from the ones I recorded earlier. See attached pic for a comparison. Looks like you have found another host plant for DC in Singapore.

Definitely looks different. Here's another shot of the flower on which the Dark Caerulean was ovipositing.
