    Default After the rains

    Cleared up yesterday, to allow a short 'window of opportunity' to go out. Not very much about, but managed a few sightings.

    Papilio palinurus palinurus (Banded Peacock) - shame about the missing tail!

    Cyrestris cocles cocles (Marbled Map)

    Great shot!

    Cheers!

    In the spirit of science, there really is no such thing as a 'failed experiment.' Any test that yields valid data is a valid test.

    Is the Banded Peacock common over there, you seem to encounter this fella often, wish we have it here is S'pore too.

    I usually encounter 1 or 2 each day (usually flying high up), so for Samui, it can be considered quite common. It is a protected species in Thailand.

    Don't get envious about not having this species in S'pore, you have many species down there that I would like to have up here too, but if we did have them, I would have no reason to travel!
