Bird survey in BTNR

I tagged along for a bird survey in BTNR this morning, was all excited to see the forest birds but the weather played me out. It was gloomy and dark...not the best weather to see birds :(
 
Later in the morning, the weather got better so the butterflies came out to greet us! :) yeah!!

Peacock Pansy (Junonia almana javana) - might be too early in the morning, this little fellow was still perching motionless underneath the leaf

 

Thought it was going to be a rather uninteresting morning since i didnt really get to see any birds, but the butterflies cheered me up alot! ;)
