This make Striped Albatross (Appias libythea olferna) was flitting around some Coat Button (Tridax procumbens ) flowers. I was lucky that it stayed on the flowers a bit longer for me to take a few shots. However, the female was a bit lethargic and shy- she was still resting. This small and a common but not very conspicuous butterfly is Lesser Grass Blue (Zizina otis lampa), feeding on some attractive Alysicarpus vaginalis (?) flowers - you are sure to find them around in this area if you are look around carefully. This is a male Crocothemis servilia - an all-red dragonfly with a row of black markings on the dorsal abdomen. It is widespread and can be found in gardens, parks and wastelands. This is a mating pair of Ischnura senegalensis - the female has at least two different colour forms. The shot here shows the green form which looks almost the same as the male.
This is another shot when the couple rested on a grass blade.
I have been noticing many insects like to feed on flowers from the Asteraceae family. There were many hover flies feeding on the flowers of Ageratum conyzoides . Not sure if this is another species of hover fly.
A day-flying moth (syntomis sp) was also attracted by these flowers.
So, no matter how small and insignificant the wild places can be, we can still find some nice flowering weeds and critters if we put on a differernt kind of lens to look around.
