    Default Records shots from Pulau Ubin 08/01/2011

    Went to butterfly hill with YY. It was a day of high butt activity and a treat for the eyes. No nice shots but ended the outing with some records shots of butts which I don't have.

    YY, do post your shots here. I know you got some rather sharp ones.

    This is what I encountered during my time there:

    Bamboo Tree Brown


    Malayan Plum Judy


    Common Evening Brown


    Autumn Leaf


    Felder's Royal


    Plain Plushblue

    Nice, Benjamin. It is always fun when there is plenty of activity. Looks like you had a productive day out. I really like the pattern of the Bamboo Tree Browns.

    Benjamin,

    Looks like you all have a fun day!

    It appears that a lot more species are moving into the Hill if the varieties of species you had shot is any indication.

    I have not seen the following there before

    Bamboo Tree Brown

    Malayan Plum Judy

    Common Evening Brown

    Plain Plushblue

    the most common FLOS - there were at least 3-4 of them there, though to our dismay they stayed JUST above eye level except for the occasional excursion to ground level..


    We were quite elated to spot this fellow....(backside blocked, grrrr)


    And yes, Felder's royal! (shot has LOTS of room for improvement)


    As well as a super-cropped-record-shot of the BTB

    Looks like everyone had fun chasing butts up on the hill. The Plain Plushblue has been seen more often there.

    An earlier trip to Ubin with Wong, we also shot it feeding on something on the Crotalaria stem. I wonder if it's unique to this species. Other than the Danainae that feed on the seed pods of this plant, has anyone got any record shots of other butts feeding on this plant's sap?

    Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try

    Thanks David. We were elated to see so many out there. The encounter with the Bamboo Tree Brown was quite accidental. It was scared out of hiding as I was turning around and the tip of my monopod hit a plant then YY shouted "What's that!!"

    Sunny,

    It was a fun day being able to see quite a few uncommon butts all in one day. All species were encountered at the Hill with the Plain Plushblue the most common of all.

    Thanks Cher Hern. The butts are out in full force that day.

    Its a fun day indeed. Have looked through my gallery, I don't have any other than a Dark Veined Tiger and Plain Plushblue shot.
