Some Critters @ Bukit Brown
I visited Bukit Brown cemetery a few times in the month of November; each time with the hope of shooting the Banded Line Blue (Prosotas lutea sivoka) which I first discovered it recently. I could see at least one individual fluttering around its larval host plant but I just didn't have the luck to shoot it again.
However, there were some other critters attracted my attention. Thus rather tame Green Crested Lizard (Bronchocela cristatella) climbed up and hung on to a piece of wooden plank peeping at the passers by.
I went closer and took some shots of its elegant posture.
I was delighted to see a Common Rose (Pachilopta aristolochiae asteris) puddling on the damp soil of an open space. A very alert fellow, it flew off whenever I tried to move forward. In fact, I also saw a Common Birdwing flew past me. Unfortunately taking a good in-flight shot is really beyond my photographic skill.
