    Default 25-Nov-06 WWW

    Went to WWW site again for better shot of pointed cilate blue, but got a better shot of Tawny palmfly instead. Later met Richard and Wang Peck at the LL site, and went exploring further in together. Managed to obtain a +2 with black-vein tiger and mottled emigrant (thanks to Richard and Wang Peck for spotting and IDing the butts). The biggest surprise to us all was the appearance of a silverstreak (not our Sunny) at one location, enjoying itself on a flower.

    Your shots are improving steadily, Horace.

    That's a Black Vein Tiger, not a Dark Vein.

    Oops, I just corrected myself before I saw your post.
    Thanks for pointing out the mistake.

    Like the composition of the BVT but pity the wings were so tattered. Don't think we can do anything to prevent the white flowers from over exposed right

    Thanks Ben Jin. Today almost the butts I shot have some damages to their wings, must be the result of the severe thunderstorms over the site for the past few days. To me the white flowers in the shots are what they look like in the field, it could be my poor eyesight not being able to discern the details.

    Don't think they look over on my monitor. There are still some details on those flowers.

    Like the shot on the Silverstreak most. However, the white flowers of Bidens pilosa look a tad over.

    Thanks Federick.
    Yes, it is always a problem when there are white patches in the scene.

    Sunny, aren't you a bit surprised about the presence of silverstreak in that area?
    We were not able to locate any ficus plant in the area. Just wonder whether there are alternative food plants for the silverstreak.

    I tried the postprocessing job again on the silverstreak pic but now with specific attention paid to the white flower pedals.
