    SC, great photos, but did you go and walk up the Forest Park, next door to Penang Butterfly Farm , where you would find butts in the wild?

    Quite a few of those butts were not around when I was there.

    They having quite a few species out there these days eh? No shots of the Rajah Brooke's Birdwing?

    Your #10 is probably the Dark Jungle Glory (Thaumantis noureddin noureddin).

    Good collections, SC.

    I wonder which camera was used to capture these beautiful pictures.
