    Default Grey Pansy at PRP

    Went for a short reccee to PRP this morning to check out the butterfly activities.
    The spice garden seem to be under construction and although there are still plants, the place is rather 'dead' without much activities
    The mangrove swamp boardwalk was a different story altogether, with lots of activities.
    Just a short 45 mins, i saw plenty of knights, some king crows, painted jezebel, great eggflies, and to my surprise, a grey pansy which I had not observed it to be there before.

    Nice bugger you shot there. Perhaps you should organise an outing at PRP for the newbies.

    Shoot all the Knights that you can see. I believe that the first shot of Terry's series is the subspecies malayana with the reddish submarginal band on the hindwings, instead of the bluish marking of subspecies parkeri. Although there are some blue markings, they are less pronounced than in the usual ssp parkeri. Maybe the two subspecies are interbreeding and coming up with variants in between malayana and parkeri.
