At Daily Farm Park, the Pagoda flowers (Clerodendrum paniculatum) attracted quite a number of butterflies. This male Common Birdwing (Troides helena cerberus) was found hovering around the area, enticing us to get some panning in-flight shots. I got a long distance shot when it fed on the flowers intermittently.
The evergreen Lantana (Lantana camera) bushes also attracted some orange skippers - they particularly preferred the smaller Lantana flowers to the Peacock flowers. I guess this is a male Telicota species judging from the markings on the underside hindwing.
I suspect this is another Telicota skipper.
Another specimen of an orange skipper with a bloated abdomen.A rather distinctive skipper with a purplish sheen on its wings, this is a female Plain Palm Dart (Cepherens acalle niasicus) which was feeding on the Lantana flowers in the late morning for just a few seconds . The males are very similar to other orange skippers such as those Telicota species. The life history of this species has been documented in details here.
