I saw this male Common Mormon (Papilio polytes romulus) resting in a shade, a very common species in this wasteland as its larval host plant the Indian Curry Leaf (Murraya koenigii ) was growing very well here.
There were quite a few Gram Blue (Euchrysops cnejus cnejus , 棕灰蝶) ) fluttering around in the late morning. They were rather active and alert and hardly stopped long enough for me to compose a better shot. I believe this is one of its host plants, a creeper growing quite well despite the dry weather in the past few weeks. I noticed this Lemon Emigrant (Catopsilia pomona pomona) resting on a lalang grass blade. Out of a few shots that I took, this particular shot captured a rare moment of it using one of the front legs rubbing its eyes.
This wasteland has very rich floral and fauna species. We have lost quite a few wasteland habitats (eg Punggol and Daily Farm areas). I really hope it will not be developed in the near future.
