    I finally managed to photograph a Golden Birdwing, early morning, while she was waiting for her wings to warm up:

    Resting in a tree 20 feet up, but luckily close to the balcony of our barn. It's a little grainy due to it being just around dawn when taken.

    Seems to be some controversy over what this is, my book calls it Malay Count Tanaecia godartii other authority calls it Horesfields Baron Tamecia iapis.

    I realise that they are moth caterpillars but these 2 were on my jasmine plane today.

    ^ They are caterpillars from the sphingidae family, common name hawk moth. Could be the same species I posted a couple of pages back.


    They will devour your jasmine so I'd keep plucking them off if I were you.

    Thanks... I know what they are and they are now feeding in the local jungle. Stunningly beautiful though!

    Whilst watching the girls cutting the rice, I spotted a few skippers enjoying themselves in the sunshine.

    Prawn, those are great shots, i think the movement adds not detracts from it.

    You know you're living in the sticks when one of these pops into the kitchen for a spot of supper...

    Another photo of a Lime Butterfly: Papilio demoleus



    This one is newly eclosed from the pupa, which I missed by just a minute or two. I took quite a few photos and think this one is the best of the bunch, taken looking into the sun rather than behind or to the side.

    Not been too good for butterflies this dry season in my area. It's not cold but cool and windy with very little to feed on. Everywhere is dry as a bone and looking for a stray spark to go up in smoke.

    Anyway, I popped over to my other place in SK 47270 to see if there was anything to see there. Not much, a yellow pansy and a few common yellows, so popped down to the pond and waited...and waited some more.

    After an hour or so I got lucky with a Great Mormon, one I see quite often but can never manage to take a picture because they don't settle very often. This one posed for around 30 minutes, settling in the mud around the pond, and I manage to get a couple of reasonable shots.







    There are lots of variations of this butterfly for the male and female. I believe this is Papilio memnon form agenor, which is common in NE Thailand.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papilio_memnon

    I saw what looked like a female of the species but couldn't get a picture; too fast for me.

    Beautiful photos. The photo of the lime butterfly just emerged from the cocoon is outstanding.

    Sorry, I'm not a great photographer but this moth amazed me. The design and colour patterns, even the shape of the wings;

    ^ Nothing wrong with that photo as far as ID is concerned maanaam. It is an Oleander hawk moth (Daphnis nerii). I posted some pics of the caterpillars a few pages back. Careful of your jasmine plants if it was taken in your back garden.

    Cheers. It's sitting on a leaf of a creeper we have growing up to our balcony.
    So, they ravage jasmine, do they?
