Another beautiful wild flower that I have no idea at all. I wish someone out there can identify these two plants.
The markings on this shot resemble that on Zizina otis lampa (Lesser Grass Blue). But the size of this Lesser Grass Blue fooled me into thinking of other species. A sun-loving and sexually dimorphic butterfly, Blue Pansy (Junonia orithya wallacei) butterfly tends to flutter near the ground and quite often we saw them frolicking and gliding from flower to flower. Not an easy subject for photography in the wild, this female Blue Pansy shot was taken from far while she was taking a short break. Though the larval host plant of Hypolimnas bolina jacintha (Jacintha Eggfly), Asystasis intrusa (same host plant as Blue Pansy) is abundant, only a couple of Jacintha Eggfly was spotted. This particular pristine female is of interest to me as the prominent white patches on the hindwing above differ from her usual form.At last, I was able to take a few shots of a Spindasis lohita senama (Long Banded Silverline) near the entrance when this pristine female decided to show up and say good bye to me. My last sighting of this beauty here was many months ago. From my field observation, this species usually appears on a late sunny morning or early afternoon.
This beautiful planthopper was found at the grassy part of this wasteland.
This black and white small spider was moving on a dry grass blade underneath a Casuarina tree where I took shelter from the scotching sun. This guy was just too active for me to take a better shot. I was very lucky to capture the moment when it was about to jump over to the other grass blade. I should have posted this shot in my earlier post. This unknown red larva was seen moving on the stem just above my head.
