    Default What a surprise!

    I must admit that I am thoroughly fed up with the saga of the Zebra Blue (Leptotes plinius) and that I can only find it at the International Departure Lounge of the Airport. I mentioned this to a friend, who recommended a new area for me to go to nearthe airport. It proved hopeless for the Zebra!

    HOWEVER, I was very surprised, and happy, to come across this species, The Black-Spotted Grass Blue (Famegana alsulus). According to my records, this has only been found in Thailand twice before (the first time on 4 July 2006).

    I do not think any of you have seen this species before (please advise me to the contrary),

    We don't have anything like this down south. Quite an interesting fella isn't he? Totally featureless undersides except for that black spot...

    Absolutely, boring really (the upperside is nice, but I could not get a photo of that, yet)! There were some kassandras around, and I needed to get extra photos of those. It was only by accident that I saw these (its the same size).

    Anyway, my first new species for 5 months, and I am a very happy bunny! (at last).

    Congrats for the plus one, Les.

    It is not boring but rather pretty. Simple and nice!

    Nice little cute fellow that you have captured.

    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or one.

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement, I really needed it. I must admit that my enthusiasm has been waning since I got back from CH. Cloudy, windy and rainy every day, with only the tiniest glimpse of sun, and I so need my daily overdose of Vitamin D! I think the rainy season has arrived early this year.
