Butterfly garden @ Bedok Town Park

In the middle of Bedok Town Park, lies a little Butterfly garden or a plot of planted butterfly-attracting plants which attracted quite a number of butterflies, mostly urban ones though.

common grass yellow on snakeweed
Common Grass Yellow (Eurema hecabe contubernalis) - one of the most common butterflies one can see in urban parks
common mime on rondeletia leucophylla
Common Mime (Papilio clytia) - one of the fast-flying butterflies, difficult to get a proper photo since they almost never stop on a perch for more than 5 secs
dark glassy tiger
Dark Glassy Tiger (Parantica agleoides) - can be mistaken for the Blue Glassy tiger butterfly in flight
ID welcomed for this dragonfly
orange emigrant on ixora
Orange Emigrant (Catopsilia scylla cornelia) - another fast flying butterfly
orange emigrant on rondeletia leucophylla
Orange Emigrant (Catopsilia scylla cornelia)
striped albatross
Striped Albatross (Appias libythea olferna) female
